This is my entry for TFOMC Round 2. I was in the "Average" category.We had had to make something musical out of Lego bricks, as follows. How can you express music in Lego bricks? Could you make a Lifesize Guitar or a minifugure scale Piano. You could even make Musical notes made out of Lego. I made the musical "Camelot". When I learned that we had to make something musical out of Legos I immediately thought of building a life-size trumpet, because I play the trumpet in band. However, I realized that it would be incredibly complex, and besides, I didn't have enough gold bricks. I then thought about musical theater because I am an actor. I was originally going to do Annie, but I decided to do Camelot because I had the soundtrack. Also, my dad really likes it, so I guess this is kind of dedicated to him. One more important thing, I am an actor, not a member of stage crew. I know some of the details aren't correct (sorry Blast), such as the stage crew not wearing their "blacks", but this is a figment of my imagination, not an exact replica, and besides, it's a cutaway. Enjoy and good luck to all my fellow contestants!
Second, the song "I Wonder What The King Is Doing Tonight", as reference for the scene. The link is here. Thank you to the uploader of the video, who is not me, so, thank you.
The stage from the front, in its entirety.
A closer shot of Arthur in his tree, along with a few snowdrifts, note the hole in the trunk.
One of the curtains and the paneling next to it.
Another shot of Arthur, man he looks happy!
The actor playing Sir Lionel prepares to jump at a rat on on the end of the chains.
The rat, the source of all the trouble.
The camera on the catwalk, it shows up on a monitor backstage, but more on that later.
The other curtain and its paneling.
A closeup of the hole in the tree.
The actor playing Sir Lionel, preparing to perform his gravity-defying leap.
The man working the camera, lights,and curtain. Although its hard to see he's wearing a headset mic. An interesting side note, when I designed the MOC I decided the director and the tech-man would be brothers, hence the similar blond hair.
Some of the chains of unknown use.
Another shot of the tech-man.
Some helmets and a breastplate, for stage use only, of course.
The director talking to the actor playing Sir Dinadan, notice the monitor I spoke of earlier.
Some props, I apologize for the LURP prop, but hey, they never said it had to be pretty.
The actor playing Sir Lancelot (the man in red with the lion crest and sword) talking to the actor playing Sir Sagramore in the men's dressing room.
Lance's mail armor, used in the tilting (jousting) and battle scenes. Notice how I made the stool.
The stool and mirror.
The entire MOC from the rear.
The tech-man, hard at work.
Another shot of the director and the actor playing Sir Dinadan. Yes, that is a cow, but this is a medieval musical after all.
The cow, closer up.
The actor playing Sir Sagramore talking to the actor playing Lance (simply another angle).
The director, with his headset mic.
The female stage crew member.
The fold-up ladder leading to the catwalk.
Those are some huge spareribs! Yes, they did come from the Wampa cave set.
A scepter and shield, note the bit of Arthur's chair you can see in the background.
Two more shields and a key.

The tech-man, from the side.
Another angle of the actor playing Sir Lionel and the rat.
A section of the women's dressing room, nice and orderly, just a purse and....wait....is that a shovel?
The short ladder leading up to one of the wings. There is also an emergency crawlspace under the backstage area.
The actress playing Guenevere and her dog, about to make their big entrance.
More of the rat on the chains of unknown use.
The view of the stage from above the catwalk.
Some lights, I just thought the purple and blue looked cool together so I built it like that.

Say hi to the tech-man!
The actor playing Sir Dinadan.
The actress playing Guenevere.
The actress playing Guenevere wearing her hood, man those Han Solo Hoth hood pieces are useful!
The stage without the figs or props. Something you may have not noticed, there is a door leading to the backstage area used for moving props between scenes.
The door opened.
The cast and crew, including the animals.
Lastly, the tree and snowdrifts.
Please, remember to rate and comment!
Lancelot requests it of you!
Haha! Don't worry about not being technically correct, I'm an actor too. I love that you included the technical side of things though, not many people do. The lights are good and well done for including the monitor! Good thinking. The build itself could use a little work but great idea and nicely done. Good luck in the comp'.
