About the Show

A classic musical based on T.H. White's "The Once and Future King".

Story: Guinevere, 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 all of them, and rumors begin to circulate about his affair with Guinevere. Can Camelot be the idealistic place of Arthur's dreams?
