Seattle Musical Theatre Presents Tony Award-Winning Musical, Camelot

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

SMT opens its 34th season with Lerner and Loewe’s multiple Tony award-winning musical, Camelot. The show runs weekends September 10 – October 2, with a special performance Thursday, September 30.

Based on the T. H. White novel The Once and Future King, Camelot is the setting of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
The entire community of Camelot awaits the arrival of Guenevere, King Arthur of England's future Queen. Although they have never met before, each are enchanted with the other and all seems well until Lancelot Du Lac becomes the most celebrated of King Arthur’s Knights of the Roundtable and rumors begin to circulate about his affair with Guenevere. Can Camelot be the idealistic place of Arthur’s dreams?

Some of the enchanting musical numbers include “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood”, “The Lusty Month of May”, “How to Handle a Woman”, “I Loved You Once in Silence”, “If Ever I Would Leave You” and “What Do the Simple Folk Do?”

The cast of SMT’s production features Meowset Abbott as Guenevere, Jared Michael Brown as King Arthur, and Matthew Posner as Lancelot. Camelot marks the debut of all three actors on the SMT stage. Making his Seattle Musical Theatre directorial debut is Ward Scott Webster. Paul Linnes is music director, conducting the Seattle Musical Theatre orchestra.

Performances are held at Seattle Musical Theatre at Magnuson Park, 7400 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performance begin at 7:30 pm; Sunday matinees are at 2 pm. Ticket prices range from $20 - $40. To reserve your tickets, or for further information call 206-363-2809 or visit the website.
