To Entice One and All


To Join Us on Our Ghost Cruise,


We’ve Persuaded Dr. sUess,


Musical Director Jade Belle,


And Casting Director Joe


To Also Present a Very Special


Ghost Cruise Rendition of Camelot


 


And With Yet Another Stroke of Genius,


Joe Has Already Cast Long Island George


In the Role of King Arthur


 


The Role of Sir Lancelot du Lac


Is Being Auditioned For By


Two Very Noble Knights:


 


Peter ‘Dragon Slayer’ Paton


&


Richard ‘Chiselpecks’ Cederberg


 


The Role of Lady Guinevere


Is Being Auditioned For By


Three Very Lovely Ladies:


 


Princess Anita


Chrissy ‘Frumpalina’ McVay


&


Kate Bogside


 


And You Have Absolutely Not Lived,


Until You Hear Long Island George Belt Out:


 


The Camelot Overture


 


 


It's true ! It's true ! The crown has made it clear,


The climate must be perfect all the year.


 


A law was made a distant moon ago here:


July and August cannot be too hot!


And there's a legal limit to the snow here


In Camelot.


 


The winter is forbidden till December,


And exits March the second on the dot!


By order, summer lingers through September


In Camelot.


 


Camelot! Camelot!


I know it sounds a bit bizarre,


But in Camelot, Camelot,


That's how conditions are.


 


The rain may never fall till after sundown,


By eight, the morning fog must disappear.


In short, there's simply not,


A more congenial spot,


For happily-ever-aftering.


Than here in Camelot.


 


Camelot! Camelot!


I know it gives a person pause,


But in Camelot, Camelot,


Those are the legal laws!


The snow may never slush upon the hillside,


By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.


 


In short, there's simply not,


A more congenial spot,


For happily-ever-aftering,


Than right here,


In Camelot!


 


 


Sing It, George!

Camelot could never be so clever ...

I was humming along with those wonderful lyrics from Camelot. I wish I had a good voice but fate was not kind to me. My kingdom for a voice. This is getting more exciting as it goes along such talented people we have in the den and with a writer who constantly amazes us with his talent.

D'ED...???

Are you SURE...you are not ED SULLIVAN??? Because you keep on bringing us a really good shoe!...RUFUZ may want to chew on THAT for a while...

Okay, okay ...it's true......Jade Belle was playing piano ---and we WERE struck with the spectacular notion of bringing a performance of Camelot to the DPS Ghost Cruise!

Joe rang up Long island, and King George auditioned for us via Verizon.......well! He is so gifted, Joe had no choice but to cast him as King, on the spot! Joe figures Peter the Dragonslayer and Richard Chiselpecks can DUKE it out for themselves, and the one left standing will perform as Lotsalance...oops! I mean, Lancelot!

Princess Anita, Frumpalina and Kate Bogside are due to audition tonight at 8:00 - Joe will be assisted by Oliver aka Softshoe Eddie, in the selection of the coveted role of Lady Guinevere. Jade had her nails done, during a 4- hour paws, but is now ready to resume.

We consider Camelot to be a touch of class, from DPS Entertainment Director, Dead ED, and are pleased to participate!

Yours truly,
dr. sUess [because it's all about U!]

My goodness!! A chance to have me name lit up in lights!! Wow, thanks, Ed, for the chance to audition... have to say though, that all those shades peeps is wearing suggests to me a bit of a dodgy subplot somewhere along the line... not sure we can be trusted... unless it's just the adrenalin of the moment. Now let me see... I can do the horse-prancin bit (see me new Biog photo... that's the tame one!)... and I'm growin me hair to cover me modesty... ooops, sorry.... wrong Lady... And, hmmmm... the weather conditions would suit me and me Bogside bathin suit... But, as for the cooking with which to grace that very large Round Table, think I'm a bit stuck... unless a few protein-packed Fruit Smoothies would do the trick?! Other than that, spose my Carbon-covered Cookies might suffice... they'll put hairs on the deadmanschest, at least. So, what d'ya wanna hear me sing?? Knights in White Satin or One Of These Knights?? OK, if the Eagles are off, then I'll just go offer myself to a passing Griffon Vulture... Remember me: I Came-alot; I Saw-alot and I Conquered-not! :)) And no... I won't give up the day job... Back to me Beachstation.... LOL Kate Bythebonnieburnside xx

Dead Poet

Those are magical and enchanting conditions that exist in the fabled and glorious Camelot, legendary home of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table !

What a superlative and rivetting rendition of Camelot this promises to be, with such an illustrious and noble cast assembled for the Ghost Ship Summer Cruise..

This fortunate entourage are walking in the footsteps of some of the most famous actors in Hollywood..

Dare we call it the DPS Hall of Fame...
