Cam-Plex announces its touring productions for 2022

It’s not a secret that Covid-19 has created havoc on the entertainment industry. From concerts and theatrical performances nationally to hometown plays and shows, the pandemic has altered public events the last year.
The popular touring productions at the Cam-Plex were no different. Many shows in the last two seasons have been canceled, but at last, the ink is dry for the remainder of the action-packed schedule as restrictions have loosened and the curtain is rising on a fun-filled lineup for the next six months in Gillette.
Most recently, Christmas in Killarney had a one-night show in late December to wrap up the 2021 calendar year of shows. It was a prelude to a big season planned by Cam-Plex staff.
If 2021 was any indication of things to come, then Cam-Plex will again be the place to see live entertainment. Cam-Plex just released its lineup for the second half of the 2021-22 touring productions visiting Campbell County.
The first production of the new year is just three weeks away. It will be Alice in Wonderland in which Campbell County kids are invited to participate (see details below).
All shows are in the Heritage Center at Cam-Plex and tickets are available at Cam-Plex.com through the season which runs until June.

Campbell County’s most requested return tour. It’s 80 minutes of unadulterated entertainment that combines high energy dance, live music and foot stomping choreography with the incredible talent of nine ordinary guys who perform everything from sing-along classics to classic rock. Imagine the greatest pub gig you’ve ever been to and multiply it by 10 and you’ll still be nowhere near the fun that this show exudes throughout.
Featuring pub tunes, folk, rock, choral and Broadway numbers, the nine guys showcase music that has wide appeal. The cast features world class tap dancers, poets, instrumentalists and singers, ensuring that there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting show for all ages. Not only is the concert set in a pub, but it has a real working bar from which the cast will pull pints and invite audience members to get up close and personal with the show – witnessing the action from chairs and tables among the guys.
