SHOW INFORMATION:

Camelot will star Stephen West as King Arthur, and be directed by Daniel C. Cooney, musical directed by Tyler Driskill, and choreographed by Matthew Brennan. In Medieval England, young King Arthur hopes to create an idyllic kingdom guided by honor and righteousness, embodied by his Knights of the Round Table. But Arthur’s perfect world is an illusion; his wife Guinevere secretly loves the handsome and noble knight, Lancelot. With enchantment, pageantry, and glorious melodies, Lerner and Loewe’s classic won’t “Let it be forgot / That once there was a spot / For one brief shining moment that was know as Camelot.” Songs include “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” “The Lusty Month of May,” and the rousing title number.

Camelot will begin rehearsals the week of May 8th, and performances will run June 9th through July 3rd, 2017.

9 to 5 the Musical will be co-directed by Daniel C. Cooney and Thalia V. Schramm, and music directed by Tyler Driskill. 9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?
