The four-time Tony Award-winning classic, Camelot is coming to Casa Mañana Theatre March 2 - 10. Tickets are on sale now.
Let Casa Mañana take you back to a kingdom of knights, festivals and magic with this Lerner and Loewe classic musical based on the book, The Once and Future King by T.H. White. King Arthur is betrothed to the beautiful Guenevere, but she falls for the young knight Lancelot. After the affair is made public, this once peaceful kingdom is now torn apart in a war over the love of a woman. This enchanting score includes such musical theatre classics as "If Ever I Would Leave You," "Before I Gaze At You Again," and "Camelot."
