Camelot (Chamber Version) 10/04–10/27Buy Tickets
KALAMAZOO—Farmers Alley Theatre openS its 12th season with a new chamber version of one of literature’s greatest tales, Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot, running October 4 through 27. Reservations can be made by calling (269) 343-2727 or visiting www.farmersalleytheatre.com.
Borrowing from the Arthurian legends, this fmasterpiece has been re-imagined for a smaller cast to deepen the focus on the historic love triangle between King Arthur, the beautiful and head-strong Guenevere, and the dashing knight Sir Lancelot. Still maintaining the rich score that was made famous over 60 years ago with songs like “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “I Loved You Once in Silence”, and of course, “Camelot”, this classic musical has received a make-over ready to introduce its story to a brand new generation of theatregoers.
Farmers Alley Theatre has brought in three out-of-town Equity Members to play the members of this legendary love triangle. Dave Anthony Vogel, seen on Broadway in the mega-hit Chicago, leads the Knights of the Round Table as King Arthur. Sarah Ellis (Guenevere) has played regionally all over the country, most recently in the National Tour of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. Kevin Toniazzo-Naughton rounds out the triangle as Lancelot, with an impressive list of credits including Matilda, Chess, and, somewhat ironically, Monty Python’s Spamalot! The rest of the cast features talented local professionals Hunter Buckingham, Jeff Cachero, Este’Fan Kizer, Atis Kleinbergs, and Aleksander Papanastsopoulous.
Director Lee Buckholz makes his Farmers Alley Theatre debut. Cindy Hunter will serve as our production’s music director. Heather Folsom will be the production’s choreographer and Atis Kleinbergs, the show’s fight choreographer.
