This small cast version of Lerner and Loewe's Camelot has been adjusted to suit a smaller ensemble. All the songs are there, with new orchestrations, and the smaller cast size allows the Revelers to sing, dance, and interact with the audience as they tell the story.
Borrowing from the Arthurian legends, Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot is the duo’s fantastical masterpiece which triumphed on Broadway in a legendary original production that led to a film version, and numerous revivals in New York, London and across the globe. Its Original Broadway Cast Album topped the charts for 60 weeks, with a rich score boasting such gems as "If Ever I Would Leave You," “I Loved You Once in Silence,” "The Lusty Month of May," and of course, "Camelot."
An idealistic King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, embodied by his Knights of The Round Table. His Ideals, however, are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with Lancelot, and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance.
