Camelot turns its spotlight on Dinah Shore

Camelot Theatre will feature American singer, actress and television personality Dinah Shore for the first of its musical vignettes of 2011.

"Spotlight on Dinah Shore" will preview Thursday, Jan. 13, open Friday, Jan. 14, and run through Sunday, Jan. 23, at Camelot, 101 Talent Ave., Talent. Shows are at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays.

Camelot's show stars Renée Hewitt as the late vocalist whose smooth voice made hits out of dozens of standards written by Harold Arlen, Hoagie Carmichael, Johnny Mercer and others.

Camelot's show features 24 songs that Shore made popular, such as "Blues in the Night," "Skylark" and others.

After making many television appearances, Shore got her own show, "The Dinah Shore Show" on NBC, from 1951 to '56. Then she hosted "The Dinah Shore Chevy Show" until 1963. The sponsor's theme song, "See the U.S.A. in Your Chevrolet," became a signature piece for Shore.

She also had network daytime TV talk shows in the '70s and '80s and on cable TV in the '90s.

Tickets cost $20, $16 for the preview and are available at www.camelottheatre.org or by calling 541-535-5250.
