Man of La Mancha

An Inspiring Musical Quest

Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

(formerly Dunfield Theatre Cambridge)

One of the greatest treasures in musical theatre, Man of La Mancha is a breathtaking tale of epic proportions.

In a bleak dungeon, the playwright Cervantes is awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition. But first he must face a court of fellow prisoners eager to relieve him of his precious unfinished manuscript. In order to save himself, Cervantes stages the saga of Don Quixote, casting himself as the deluded knight errant on a magical adventure to defend the noble principles of honour and truth.

With its timely message of courage and idealism in the face of despair, Man of La Mancha will inspire all of us to keep reaching for the stars with its unforgettable anthem, “The Impossible Dream.” This powerful and riveting theatrical experience will touch the heart, stir the soul, and unleash the imagination.
