Camelot "Camelot," the legendary tale about the Knights of the Round Table, the birth of democracy and based on T.H. White's novel The Once and Future King, is Art Center Theater's Tenth Anniversary Musical.

Directed by Lynne Atkins, with musical direction by Don Krieger, this fantastical story promises a little something for everyone; magic, passion, idealism, betrayal and revenge, accompanied by Lerner and Loewe's awarding winning musical score. At a time when our world has been torn anew by questions of war and peace, this show is more relevant than ever.

In the realm of Camelot, King Arthur (Bryan Morse) has created a utopian land of chivalry and civil rule. However when his beloved Guenevere (Mary Lynn Preiss) falls in love with Lancelot du Lac (Scott Ignacio), Arthur's most trusted knight, Arthur is faced with a terrible dilemma that threatens the very foundation of his kingdom. The catalyst is Arthur's vengeful, bastard son Mordred (Phil Atkins).

Camelot Arthur's teacher, Merlin (Phil Graf), is powerless to save him and his eccentric friend, King Pelenore (Sam Parsons), cannot protect him. This is the stuff of legends; a cherished tale often told, in countless versions - literary, theatrical and film.

Art Center Theater's audience is in for a few surprises in the staging of this show. A cast of 21 performers will bring the Kingdom of Camelot to life, some playing multiple roles. In addition to the actors named above, the cast includes Madison Bell, Darla Buechner, Shayla Buechner, Matt Burnett, Dylan Freebairn-Smith, Liam Ignacio, Victoria Ignacio, Rachel Kritz, Suzanne Kritz, Laura Leigh, Lillian McFarland, Emmary Mobert, Leif Rasmassen, Melody Schwicthenberg and Bob Welch.

Performances are February 22, 23, 28 and March 1 & 2 at 7:00 p.m. - February 24 and March 3 at 2:00 p.m.
