The shows will take place in September 2019 in Norway. Tickets are available NOW!
Clive: “Three cheers for the 'Viking work ethic'! Having just got back from the “winter camp rehearsal weekend' in Norway, I can say we are definitely in good shape for the shows later in the year. These guys worked long and hard, and the results were clear to see. Brilliant - Well done everyone! That was fun.”

"Election Night" Soundtrack!
Clive has been commissioned to write the soundtrack for a new horror film by the director Neil Monaghan. Nolan and Monaghan are currently also working together on the film versions of Clive’s musicals “Alchemy” and “King’s Ransom” under the title of "The Professor King chronicles".
Clive: "I'm very excited to announce that I will be writing the music for a new film, ‘Election Night’. This film is directed by Neil Monaghan and hopefully will give him and the ‘Suspicious Character Films’ company a good run up towards making 'Alchemy’ and 'King's Ransom' into movies.
Will this film score be anything like the musicals? No... not in any way!"
“Salvation Has A Name” Video!
In September 2018, Clive Nolan together with the director Neil Monaghan, and “King’s Ransom” cast members: Chris Lewis (Edwin Deeks) and Gemma Ashley (Eva Bonaduce), travelled to Norway to film one of the musical’s anthems, “Salvation Has A Name”. The group was joined by an extensive number of the Caamora Norway artists, as well as the Norwegian film crew: Dag W. Grundseth and Olav Urdahl. The filming took place over two days at the Høytorp fort in Mysen and marked the beginning of “The Professor King’s Chronicles” location test filming.
Neil Monaghan: “This is the fourth test film we have shot ahead of going into full production. This number, taken from “King's Ransom”, allowed us to test the viability of shooting in Norway as well as experimenting with some 3D computer generated shots. Our Norwegian partners were fantastic as ever and made the whole shoot an absolute pleasure. Thanks also to Chris Lewis who excels as Edwin Deeks.”
“The Lost Journals” Theatre Show in 2019!

Clive: “Next year, the Caamora UK group will be performing a special show called ‘The Lost Journals’. This performance will feature some of the best songs and moments from my musicals ‘She’, ‘Alchemy’ and ‘King’s Ransom’ as well as some new material… all presented in a brand new context! This will be an exciting and fun production, and will feature many of our singers, past and present. Don’t miss it!”
Happy Christmas from Caamora Norway!
On December 1st and 2nd, 2018 Clive and the artists of Caamora Norway (soloists, the band and the chorus) performed two Christmas shows in the Norwegian venues. The shows featured the songs from Clive’s repertoire, including his three Christmas songs: “The Gift”, “Embers” and “The Night Before Christmas”, as well as the Norwegian Christmas classic “Musevisa”. Both events met with enthusiastic reactions from the audiences. Additionally, during the show in Sætre, the head of Caamora Norway, Morten L. Clason, was presented with the award and title of the Man of Culture of the Year 2018 by the authorities of the Hurum region.
Clive: “I have just returned from another wonderful Norway visit. There wasn’t snow this time, but the spirit of the people around was excellent, and we performed two most enjoyable Christmas gigs. As always it was a pleasure working with the Vikings, and I think we raised our level from last year. The hospitality was brilliant, and I can’t wait to get back! Congratulations to Morten for his award, and thanks to all who took part!”
