Theatre de Jeunesse Announces Summer Production “Camelot”
Music by Frederick Loewe
Book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

Summer, 2014. Theatre de Jeunesse, a local theatre arts organization for Mid-Ohio Valley high school and early college aged young adults, announces the opening of the musical classic Camelot on July 11th at the Hermann Fine Arts Center at 500 Butler Street in Marietta. The Tony award-winning story of the marriage of England’s King Arthur to Guenevere is played out amid the pageantry of Camelot. Based on “The Once and Future King” it is the age old tale of chivalry, equality, honor and faith in the court of King Arthur. The show opens with King Arthur nervously preparing to meet his new Queen, Guenevere. While initially, Guenevere tries to escape the marriage, the two young people soon fall in love, to the pleasure of Arthur’s wise tutor, Merlyn. In order to bring peace and stability to the kingdom, Arthur establishes the Knights of the Round Table who would use their might for right. Included amongst these knights, is the most famous of them all, Lancelot. Soon, Lancelot and Queen Guenevere fall in love. Their affair is made public by Arthur’s evil illegitimate son Mordred and his aunt, the sorceress Morgan le Fey. As a result, peace ends and war breaks out as Arthur’s troops prepare to fight Lancelot’s French army.
