Camelot tells the story of King Arthur, his fair Lady Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table and is based on T.H. White's tale The Once and Future King. Jody Markgraf directs the cast while Cherie Ploof provides musical direction and Cathy Olson provides the choreography. Brad Busse, Joanna Geppert, and Luke VanMeveren lead the cast as King Arthur, Lady Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot, with Kyle Messer providing comic relief as Mad King Pellinore. Amanda Kuseske is Morgan Le Fay, and Michael Meraz plays the devious Mordred. Chelsey Maus makes a cameo appearance as Nimue, and Roger Golby weaves his magic as Merlin the Magician. The talented cast is eager to take the stage and promises great entertainment!
