Who says chivalry is dead? The Best of Broadway series at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center is bringing Camelot to Charleston for a two-night engagement. The musical follows the timeless story of King Arthur, his queen, Guinevere, and the young and rugged Lancelot in medieval England.
According to the PAC website, “Camelot is one of those extraordinary musicals that has something for everyone: romance, comedy, drama, and a score full of memorable songs.” Since its official Broadway opening in 1960, featuring Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet in its original cast, Camelot has seen revivals both on and off Broadway in 1981 and 1993, and a U.S. regional tour began in 2007 and is ongoing to this day. The production has seen its share of celebrity cast members (Christopher Lloyd, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Gabriel Byrne to name a few.)
The production that you’ll see at the PAC includes Mark Harapiak, whose repertoire includes five seasons with the Stratford Festival as King Arthur. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets or at the Coliseum box office. —Amber Crago
