The legend of King Arthur has enchanted generation after generation. His pure, perfect kingdom was shattered because of the tragic passion between Queen Guenevere and the Round Table’s bravest knight, Lancelot. In 1960, Alan Jay Lerner adapted the story for Broadway with stunning music by Frederick Loewe. The irresistible story and the gorgeous score have made this a classic musical.
NOTE: Auditions for "Camelot" are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. JUNE 3, 4 & 5 at the Garfield Park Arts Center, 2432 Conservatory Drive, Indianapolis, IN in Garfield Park. If you are interested in any of the singing roles in "Camelot," you are asked to bring along music for your vocal number that can be played by an accompanist.
