Camelot - MLOC Stage Production

Camelot

MLOC Productions' November 2011 show is:

 Camelot the Musical

 

This show is based on as many facts as can be cobbled together from historic documents and heresay from some 700 years ago. We must consider the universal love triangle that creates tension between King Arthur, Guenevere and Lancelot. The theatre audiences of the 1960’s found difficulty in coping with this infidelity but todays tv savvy audiences should cope with the love triangle far easier than they do with the dynasty of ‘the Bold and Beautiful’ or the camelot of the Kennedy’s.

All of the Knights who audition, will need to be swashbuckling, debonair and chivalrous. But remember the erosion of the feudal system and the pursuit of self gain finally compromised their lofty position.

Having said all of that, the comic aspect of the show will be accentuated with no loss to the story line.

The Story

Guenevere travels to Camelot to become Arthur’s Queen. The entire court, apart from Arthur, whom she has never met comes to greet her. Nervous and shy, he hides in the nearby woods.

The meeting is successful and they marry. Merlin inspires Arthur to establish order and peace so the Order of the Round Table is established encouraging Knights of Europe to come to Camelot.

Lancelot arrives from France to challenge others and a jousting contest will determine the best knight. Guenevere is smitten.,,and the love triangle tangles.

Lancelot is torn between his passion for the Queen and his loyalty to Arthur. He leaves Camelot to return two years later to be made a Knight of the Round Table. But he still loves Guenevere.

Mordred, who maybe Arthur’s illegitimate son, arrives to discredit the King…and then finds Lancelot in the queen’s bedroom… oh dear! Now Morgan le Fey, Lancelot’s Sorceress Aunt, has trapped Arthur in the woods. You can imagine the furore. Lancelot escapes but poor Guenevere is sentenced to burn at the stake. She is rescued by Lancelot and he takes her to France.

Poor Arthur has to now wage war on France ,even though Lancelot and Guenevere forgive him. Tom of Warwick/Mallory, a young boy is sent back to England to tell of Camelots ideals


The show will be presented at the Phoenix Theatre, 101 Glenhuntly Rd., Elwood
