Apr. 22 - May. 22, 2016
Camelot arrives at the Palace in Georgetown! Yes, the legendary Lerner and Loewe musical Camelot is on stage at Georgetown’s Historic Palace Theatre on 5 weekends from April 22nd to May 22nd, 2016. The inimitable Joe Penrod returns to The Palace for the coveted role of King Arthur; and Kristin DeGroot – Belle in Beauty & The Beast – portrays the lovely Guenevere.
Palace Artistic Director Mary Ellen Butler directs and stages Camelot, with Vincent Sandoval providing his brilliant choreography. Don’t miss the timeless tale of King Arthur, Guenevere, Lancelot, and Merlyn, featuring many enduring songs: “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “What Do the Simple Folk Do?” “The Lusty Month of May,” "Camelot," and so many more!
Based on T.H. White’s “The Once and Future King,” this classic musical has Music by Frederick Loewe and Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. The original production of Camelot, which premiered on Broadway on December 3, 1960, was directed and staged by Moss Hart. Originally starring Richard Burton, Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet, and Roddy McDowell on Broadway, Camelot won four Tony awards and played for 873 performances on Broadway.
Guenevere, King Arthur’s lovely wife, encourages him to establish the Knights of the Round Table. As the Knights grow in fame, Lancelot Du Lac becomes the most celebrated of them all, and rumors begin to circulate about his affair with Guenevere. Can Camelot be the idealistic place of Arthur’s dreams?
Thanks to our non-profit partner, Faith in Action of Georgetown, for their support.
