7:30 PM Camelot

Experience Camelot’s “one brief shining moment” as Lerner and Loewe envisioned it in one of theatre’s most legendary musicals. Recount the time-honored legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table in an enchanting fable of chivalry, majesty, and brotherhood in this four-time Tony Award® winning show. Camelot tells the story of the legend of King Arthur who rules his kingdom with new ideals, bringing peace to a troubled land. But when his beautiful new Queen Guinevere and the dashing Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, give in to their passion for one another, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues. When Mordred, King Arthur’s illegitimate son, catches on and sees a kingdom in chaos, he attempts to destroy all that is Camelot! Intimate and fresh, never has this story of passion, pageantry and betrayal been more captivating. The celebrated score includes the classics “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” and the title song, “Camelot.”

MFA Thesis Exhibition: Lauren Schiefelbein

MFA exhibition on social design in rural America

Creating positive social change in rural America through the use of design is the subject of a Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition at the WVU Creative Arts Center by graphic design graduate student Lauren Schiefelbein. The exhibition will be open March 30-April 3.

Titled “Rural America: Facilitating Dialogue through Design to Create Positive Social Change,” the graphic design project will be available for viewing in the Laura Mesaros Gallery. A public reception for the exhibition will be held on Thursday, April 2, at 6 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

Schiefelbein’s exhibit will allow visitors to understand design’s role in approaching challenges in rural America, with the goal of creating meaningful and lasting change.

The exhibition’s centerpiece is a case study project with a local organization called the Friends of George Byrer Field. Located in Barbour County, West Virginia, the group is a grass-roots organization of concerned citizens who are seeking financial solutions to address the poor condition of the lone outdoor athletic complex in the county.

Schiefelbein joined the committee as a graphic designer to help brainstorm ideas and develop potential strategies for increasing community support for the proposed outdoor performance, athletic and fitness facility—one that can provide health, economic and social benefits to Barbour County and its residents.

“I wanted to use my research as a chance to give back to a community that has provided me with so much love and support throughout the years,” Schiefelbein said. “My hometown is full of hardworking and caring people, and I think that they deserve the same opportunities that surrounding areas are lucky enough to have.”

She said the benefits that would come with a new public facility would be great for the local economy and the overall morale of the community.

“Exercise opportunities aren’t easily accessible in the area, but with the central location and free use, this safe and modern facility could increase community wellness and fitness,” she said. “A successful campaign could create a crown jewel for the county, while bringing residents together to work towards a common goal.”

To help achieve this goal, Schiefelbein developed a design campaign to utilize existing organizations and local resources to help promote the project and educate residents on why Barbour County needs a new facility.

“I also have been working with the community to explore the many long-term benefits that could follow,” she said. “With this initiative taking place in a rural area with very limited resources, I have had to think creatively about how to package and disseminate this information to ensure that it reaches the intended audience.”

Schiefelbein holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in graphic design and electronic media from West Virginia University. She will graduate this spring with an MFA in graphic design from the WVU School of Art and Design. She will graduate this spring with an MFA in graphic design from the WVU School of Art and Design.

12:00 PM - 9:30 PM MFA Thesis Exhibition: Xia Zhang, multi-media

Zhang’s exhibition, “Contemplations of Otherness & Beauty,” open March 16 through April 3, explores the ideas of otherness and both internal and external beauty. The work derives from diminishing memories of her childhood, to present-day endeavors and failures.

A public reception for the exhibition will be held March 20 at 7:30 pm at the galleries.

In creating this work, Zhang said she hoped to fully understand situations and experiences that define her, by working with objects and materials that are personally symbolic.

Zhang also incorporates video and photography into her work. In “The Thoroughness of Your Seediness,” she projects a video of herself slicing and then sewing back together a pomegranate to display and then hide the seeds within. She said she uses video to capture the ephemeral quality of this symbolic task that stands for a personal relationship between another person and herself.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Opera Production: "Hansel and Gretel"

Frightening forests, wicked witches and haunting melodies await audience members at the Creative Arts Center, and in the local schools, in early April as the WVU Opera Theatre presents “Hansel and Gretel.”


Performances at the CAC will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Monday, April 1, 2 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Antoinette Falbo Theatre.

Based on the popular Grimm's fairy tale, the opera “Hansel and Gretel” was originally composed by Engelbert Humperdinck as an entertainment for his family, with his own sister writing the libretto for the score. 

When the opera premiered in 1893, Richard Strauss praised it as “a masterpiece” and “Hansel and Gretel” became an instant success. It has continued to delight audiences of all ages to this day. 

The WVU production features graduate and undergraduate vocal performance majors from the WVU School of Music performing all the musical roles. Music director is Marcello Cormio, stage director is Rebecca Kreider and set design is by William Winsor.

In addition to “Hansel and Gretel,” the WVU Opera Theatre production will also include scenes from Gaetano Donizetti’s “L’Elisir D’Amore” (The Elixir of Love), Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide,” and Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” and “Into the Woods.” 

After the CAC performances, WVU Opera Theatre will be taking the show on the road to elementary schools in the Morgantown area, as part of its new program called “Opera-on-Wheels.”

Schools on the tour, during April 8-24, include Eastwood Elementary, Brookhaven Elementary, Morgantown Learning Academy, North Elementary, Mylan Park Elementary, Morgantown Christian Academy, Mountainview Elementary, St. Francis Elementary, Cheat Lake Elementary and Fairmont Catholic.

According to Stage Director Rebecca Kreider, “Opera-On-Wheels” was established to bring quality classical music to young West Virginia audiences.

“With a commitment to making quality music accessible and interesting for our elementary students, Opera-On-Wheels will bring one-act operas, appropriate for young audiences, to local schools and communities annually,” she said.

“The programs will be performed in a school cafeteria or gymnasium, with the student audience close enough to enjoy everything up close. In this show, they will see Gretel picking strawberries and wandering through the ‘forest’ of students, and, of course, the Witch and her oven!

“A question-and-answer session will follow each performance so that students can speak with the cast and ask questions about singing and music.”

“Hansel and Gretel” is approximately 50 minutes in length and is appropriate for ages kindergarten through adult.

The cast, featuring different students performing on different days, includes: Natilan Crutcher and Janine Ernsting as Hansel; Jocelyn Raychel and Ruby Zhao as Gretel; Devan Balaguer as The Witch; Denise Battle and Caryn Crozier as Mother; Alex Anderson, Luke Diamond and Joe Ryan as Father; and Hannah Friend and Rachel Taylor as Fairy. Pianists performing with the show will be Youna Choi and Giuliana Contreras.

12:00 PM - 9:30 PM MFA Thesis Exhibition: Xia Zhang, multi-media

Zhang’s exhibition, “Contemplations of Otherness & Beauty,” open March 16 through April 3, explores the ideas of otherness and both internal and external beauty. The work derives from diminishing memories of her childhood, to present-day endeavors and failures.

A public reception for the exhibition will be held March 20 at 7:30 pm at the galleries.

In creating this work, Zhang said she hoped to fully understand situations and experiences that define her, by working with objects and materials that are personally symbolic.

Zhang also incorporates video and photography into her work. In “The Thoroughness of Your Seediness,” she projects a video of herself slicing and then sewing back together a pomegranate to display and then hide the seeds within. She said she uses video to capture the ephemeral quality of this symbolic task that stands for a personal relationship between another person and herself.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM Opera Production: "Hansel and Gretel"

Frightening forests, wicked witches and haunting melodies await audience members at the Creative Arts Center, and in the local schools, in early April as the WVU Opera Theatre presents “Hansel and Gretel.”


Performances at the CAC will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Monday, April 1, 2 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Antoinette Falbo Theatre.

Based on the popular Grimm's fairy tale, the opera “Hansel and Gretel” was originally composed by Engelbert Humperdinck as an entertainment for his family, with his own sister writing the libretto for the score. 

When the opera premiered in 1893, Richard Strauss praised it as “a masterpiece” and “Hansel and Gretel” became an instant success. It has continued to delight audiences of all ages to this day. 

The WVU production features graduate and undergraduate vocal performance majors from the WVU School of Music performing all the musical roles. Music director is Marcello Cormio, stage director is Rebecca Kreider and set design is by William Winsor.

In addition to “Hansel and Gretel,” the WVU Opera Theatre production will also include scenes from Gaetano Donizetti’s “L’Elisir D’Amore” (The Elixir of Love), Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide,” and Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” and “Into the Woods.” 

After the CAC performances, WVU Opera Theatre will be taking the show on the road to elementary schools in the Morgantown area, as part of its new program called “Opera-on-Wheels.”

Schools on the tour, during April 8-24, include Eastwood Elementary, Brookhaven Elementary, Morgantown Learning Academy, North Elementary, Mylan Park Elementary, Morgantown Christian Academy, Mountainview Elementary, St. Francis Elementary, Cheat Lake Elementary and Fairmont Catholic.

According to Stage Director Rebecca Kreider, “Opera-On-Wheels” was established to bring quality classical music to young West Virginia audiences.

“With a commitment to making quality music accessible and interesting for our elementary students, Opera-On-Wheels will bring one-act operas, appropriate for young audiences, to local schools and communities annually,” she said.

“The programs will be performed in a school cafeteria or gymnasium, with the student audience close enough to enjoy everything up close. In this show, they will see Gretel picking strawberries and wandering through the ‘forest’ of students, and, of course, the Witch and her oven!

“A question-and-answer session will follow each performance so that students can speak with the cast and ask questions about singing and music.”

“Hansel and Gretel” is approximately 50 minutes in length and is appropriate for ages kindergarten through adult.

The cast, featuring different students performing on different days, includes: Natilan Crutcher and Janine Ernsting as Hansel; Jocelyn Raychel and Ruby Zhao as Gretel; Devan Balaguer as The Witch; Denise Battle and Caryn Crozier as Mother; Alex Anderson, Luke Diamond and Joe Ryan as Father; and Hannah Friend and Rachel Taylor as Fairy. Pianists performing with the show will be Youna Choi and Giuliana Contreras.

He writes the humor column“Experimental Error” in the otherwise respectable journal Science; he has also been seen and heard on the Food Network’s Food Detectives, the Science Channel’s Head Rush, the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Kremlin, and NPR’s All Things Considered.  He currently co-hosts the Science Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science (airing outside the United States as You Have Been Warned on Discovery International), currently in its third season, and Discovery International’s new show Superhuman Science.  Adam also produces and hosts a web video series for the Journal of Visualized Experiments called Ask Adam about Grad School.

His one-man show, Please Don’t Beat Me Up: Stories and Artifacts from Adolescence, debuted to rave reviews at the Capital Fringe Festival in July 2011. In addition to his day job developing a malaria vaccine at Sanaria Inc., Adam travels the country, performing his show as part of anti-bullying programs and talking about his book to audiences of disaffected grad students.

Adam lives with his wife, Marina Koestler Ruben, and their two children, Maya and Benjamin, in Washington, DC.

Join Christian Student Union for a special movie presentation of God's Not Dead! CSU rescheduled the movie night after the first night was cancelled due to snow. The movie is great for an college students that have questions or arguments about the existence of God. It presents facts and opinions from both sides of the debate in an intelligent and educated manner. God's Not Dead was inspired by real court cases (some even from the Supreme Court) involving religious persecution in the university environment. It was released in theaters in March 2014 and was very popular across the country. There will be popcorn and other refreshments in the Ballroom. All students are more than welcome, regardless of any beliefs or opinions. "The number one reason why people should see this movie is, it will open their eyes, their minds, and their hearts to look at the possibility that there is something out there that started everything." -Kevin Sorbo

All Day Climate Change and West Virginia's Forests
Natural resource professionals face the tremendous challenge of developing and implementing conservation and management plans that help ecosystems respond to climate change.

West Virginia University’s Environmental Research Center will empower those professionals with a two-day training session, Climate Change and West Virginia’s Forests, at the Erickson Alumni Center April 14 and 15.

This hands-on training will incorporate climate change considerations and identify actions for adaptation into their own real-world forest management and conservation projects. The program is designed for public, private and tribal natural resource managers who are interested in enhancing the ability of forests to cope with changing conditions.

The first day of the training will introduce topics of past and future climate change, impacts on forest ecosystems, concepts of adaptation, and real-world examples. The second day will guide a subset of forest managers through a process to incorporate climate change adaptation into forest management and planning.

There is no cost to attend this workshop, but registration is required. Please register using the online link at www.forestadaptation.org/WV-FAPP. For more information on the training, visit the website or contact Jim Anderson, professor and director of the WVU Environmental Research Center, at 304-293-3825 or Jim.Anderson@mail.wvu.edu.

Love, Murder, & Mystery: Ballads of the Appalachian Mountains This presentation of Storyteller & Balladeer Susanna Holstein will educate the audience with Appalachian ballad performances, and educate the attendees on their cultural history. A ballad is a narrative song in which each stanza of text is sung to the same melody. Brought to the American colonies by the earliest European settlers, the ballad form has remained in oral tradition through the present day, particularly in rural parts of the southeastern United States. The ballad form originated in Europe during the Middle Ages and was firmly established in the British Isles by the fifteenth century. By the early eighteenth century, the composition of new ballads in Great Britain had tapered off, but the British ballad tradition was transported to the New World by emigrants. Many of those traveled into the mountains of Appalachia, where later scholars found the ballads being sung as they had been for centuries. This program is being presented by the WVU Appalachian Culture Committee.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Brown Lecture Series: Maya Lin, designer of Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Dan & Betsy Brown Lecture Series: "Between Art and Architecture" by Maya Lin

Maya Lin’s acclaimed work encompasses large-scale environmental installations, intimate studio artworks, architectural works, and memorials. She virtually redefined the idea of monument- with her very first work, the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, and since then has gone on to pursue a remarkable career in both art and architecture, whilst still being committed to the exploration of time, memory, history and language in her memorials.

Her artwork interprets the world through a twenty-first century lens, utilizing technological methods to study and visualize the natural environment. Through sculpture and drawing, Lin merges rational order with notions of beauty and the transcendental. Blurring the boundaries between two- and three-dimensional space, Lin sets up a systematic ordering of the landscape tied to history, time, science and language.

Lin’s artwork exudes a profound respect and love for the natural environment. Her interest in landscape has led to works influenced by topographies and geographic phenomena, finding inspiration from rock formations, ice floes, water patterns, solar eclipses, and aerial views of the earth. Lin’s work asks the viewer to reconsider nature and the environment at a time when it is crucial to do so.

Her architectural projects include the new campus master plan and main building for Novartis in Cambridge, MA, and recent completed works include the Museum for Chinese in America in New York City, the Riggio-Lynch Chapel and Langston Hughes Library for the Children’s Defense Fund, and a private residence in Colorado that was honored as one of Architecture Record’s Record Houses in 2006.  Her designs create a close dialogue between the landscape and built environment, and she is committed to advocating sustainable design solutions in all her works.

A committed environmentalist, she is working on her last memorial, What is Missing?, The project proposes that we look at a memorial not as a singular static object, but as a work that can exist in multiple forms and at multiple sites simultaneously. These works raise awareness about species and habitat loss and will give people both immediate and long-term solutions to the current crisis surrounding biodiversity loss and the overarching threat of climate change.

Her work has been in solo and group shows throughout the United States and abroad, most recently completing new work for exhibitions at the Parrish Art Museum in New York and The Ivory Press Space in Spain.

Maya Lin has been profiled in Time Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Smithsonian, and Art in America, among others. The 1996 documentary about her work, Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision won the Academy Award for Best Documentary. In 2009, Lin was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama, and will be honored this year with the prestigious Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize.

Left Alliance at WVU (formerly known as WVU College Greens) will be hosting the first ever Mid-Atlantic Solidarity Conference (MASC) and we are sending out invites to radical student groups, academics, workers, and activists in anticipation for this event. The current date for the conference is Saturday April 18th, 2015 and it will be held in the Brooks Hall on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. While this event definitely has an academic flavor, its targeted broadly to workers, students, activists, professors, etc. from across the region who are interested in radical politics, organizing, theory, and more. We plan on making this conference annual, and we hope it becomes an important place to network and converse. While the guiding theme of the event is What Are The Next Steps For The Left in The Mid-Atlantic?, we want people to come to discuss their experiences broadly and critically. Workshops and talks scheduled at the moment include feminist perspectives in organizing, histories of imperialism and labor in Appalachia, combating perceived cynicism and use of non-political groups as access points for politicization, current green organizing in the region, Commons as Practice and much more. We want to foster a range of talks from experiences in local grassroots organizing to more theoretical perspectives. Currently, we are planning on hosting numerous talks and workshops. If you are interested in doing just one or both, please indicate that on the registration form. Send all questions to kdenham@mix.wvu.edu Lunch catering will be provided at the event!! I am attaching a Google form for interested people to register at. While there is no cap on attendees, We can only guarantee food for the first 120 ​attendees, so register early!

Come here Ms. Rachel Bragg, Assistant Professor of English, give her presentation entitled "Font This and Picture That: The Art of Document Design”. Is a piece of paper just a piece of paper? Not hardly. Documents, whether paper-based or onscreen, our central to our culture. We create documents for a variety of purposes, but how often do we stop to think about how choice such as color, positioning of images, font, or even a logo determines how a person feels about a document and reacts to it? Just as much as the actual words can be persuasive, the visual rhetoric used to create the document can also act to persuade. This presentation will examine documents through the lens of document design to reveal how the features of a document create meaning. 1pm in COBE 117!

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Sexual Assault Awareness Forum
West Virginia University is joining colleges across the United States in discussing and addressing prevalence of sexual assault on campus. During April, which is sexual assault awareness month, members of the University community will discuss issues that contribute to a culture of hostility on campus. “It’s a concern many women in higher education have about hostile work and learning environments, which is reflected in high incidences of sexual violence on campuses across the country,” said Jena Martin, professor in the College of Law and one of the organizers of the event. “We want to have a thoughtful conversation on climate here at West Virginia University to address any current issues and work toward future solutions,” she said. The panel will feature members of the University community across various disciplines: • Deb Beazley, sexual assault counselor, WellWVU. • Erica Bentley, chair, Council for Women’s Concerns. • Walter S. DeKeseredy, professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology and director, Research Center on Violence. • Julia Durbin, Spectrum. • Kendra Fershee, College of Law. • David Fryson, vice president, Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. • James Goins, Title IX coordinator, Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. • Cynthia Gorman, Department of Geology and Geography and Center for Women and Gender Studies. • Taylor Graham, president, Women’s Leadership Council, College of Law. • Brian Jara, Center for Women and Gender Studies. • Ashley Morgan, vice president, Student Government Association. • Jennifer Orlikoff, chair, Center for Women and Gender Studies; president, Faculty Senate. • Elizabeth Parsons, West Virginia National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health. • Bob Roberts, chief, WVU Police. • Benjamin Seebaugh, LGBTQ Center. • Samantha Shimer, Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. • Alison Tartaglia, WELLWVU. • Wes Thomas, male engagement specialist, WELLWVU. The forum will discuss issues ranging from violence against women to bullying and resources available for victims of sexual violence on April 23 at 6 p.m. The free event, which is open to the University community, will be held in the Shenandoah Room of the Mountainlair. The Critical Conversations Series was made possible by a grant from the Higher Education Policy Commission. Refreshments will be served.

In his presentation, Wood will “question the ability of the federal government to provide funding that is sufficiently targeted on problems as to provide timely economic solutions,” he explained.

“What happens when the government funds competing research programs at levels that disadvantage one initiative over another? Is the public served better than it would be by letting the private sector conduct its own research on solutions?”

7:30 PM Pure Prairie League & Poco

Pure Prairie League’s signature hit “Aimee” is one of the most well-known and beloved country rock songs of all time. Known for its hits “Two Lane Highway,” “Let Me Love You Tonight” and “Early Morning Riser,” the band’s longevity is a testament to the timelessness of its music. Today, Pure Prairie League has returned to its roots—no sax, but pedal steel guitar—and it’s no surprise that the band is still proving that good music is still good music no matter when or where it’s played. It can easily be argued that country rock pioneers Poco first created the combination of vocal harmonies, country instruments, and rock and roll rhythms that became known as country rock. Four decades later Rusty Young, who wrote and sang “Crazy Love” and “Heart of the Night,” still leads this incredible band. With 24 original albums and 26 “Best of” and anthology collections, Poco remains one the most prolific bands in rock history. See these two legendary bands together on the Creative Arts Center stage!

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM Planting of Fairmont Apple Tree Orchard A Memorial for 37 Fallen Soldiers
- In memory of the thirty-seven West Virginia military men and woman killed in the line of duty in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars since September 11, 2001, Veterans and Warriors to Agriculture (VWA) and Zion Heritage Farm, in cooperation with the West Virginia Department of Agriculture, will honor our war dead with a special tree planting ceremony at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 25 at Zion Heritage Farm, Fairmont, WV. In a dedicated section of the farm, specially selected apple trees will be planted for each soldier, a permanent memorial placed as a tribute to their ultimate sacrifice. Families of the soldiers will select a tree for their loved ones by placing dog tags on their tree of choice. Veterans, active duty military and civilian volunteers will help plant the trees. This section of the Farm will remain open to family members year-round, and they may return at harvest to pick fruit from their trees. The public is invited to this event. Other invited guests include Governor Tomblin, Daughters of the American Revolution, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Tyler Miller and Calvin Grimm, the producers of "37 Fallen", a documentary film by West Virginia State University telling the stories of the 37 West Virginian veterans lost in Iraq and Afghanistan since September 11th, 2001 and WVU Extension. About Veterans and Warriors to Agriculture West Virginia Veterans and Warriors to Agriculture is helping get Veterans back to work. Directed by James McCormick, U.S. Army Retired, with the support of the Department of Agriculture and Commissioner Walt Helmick, VWA is a support program assisting Veterans and their families transition back to civilian life and get established in farming. Senate Bill 469, passed by unanimous vote, made it possible for land owned by the West Virginia Department of Agriculture to be farmed by Veterans, and provides the means for Veteran farmers to receive specialized training, such as growing crops or raising honeybees, hands-on assistance, and supplies. About Zion Heritage Farms Veteran family owned, Zion Heritage Farm is a fledgling apple farm, practicing responsible and sustainable husbandry, and focusing on organic U-pick apples. The majority of more than 200 trees are heritage apples, including West Virginia’s own Grimes Golden.

Public Talk sponsored by the WVU Astronomy Club The talk will take place following the Astronomy Club meeting at 6:30pm in White Hall 105. All are invited to attend. The talk will be done by Dr. Paul Cassak, Associate Professor, WVU Department of Physics and Astronomy. It is entitled 'The Closest Star: The Sun and Its Effect on Earth'. Abstract: As we all know, the sun is a very special star. It may not intrinsically be special compared to the other stars in the universe, but it is close enough to study it far better than any other star in the universe. We also feel its effects more than any other star - light from the sun supports life on Earth, and interplanetary space just outside the Earth's magnetic field is dominated by material and magnetic fields from the sun. The sun can adversely impact us through solar eruptions that cause "space weather," which can lead to power outages and damage to satellites that impact communications. In this presentation, I'll discuss the sun and its interaction with Earth, including brief discussions of how they are studied. Then, I'll briefly discuss my group's research about the physics of solar eruptions and Earth's response to material ejected from the sun.

7:30 PM Camelot

Experience Camelot’s “one brief shining moment” as Lerner and Loewe envisioned it in one of theatre’s most legendary musicals. Recount the time-honored legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table in an enchanting fable of chivalry, majesty, and brotherhood in this four-time Tony Award® winning show. Camelot tells the story of the legend of King Arthur who rules his kingdom with new ideals, bringing peace to a troubled land. But when his beautiful new Queen Guinevere and the dashing Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, give in to their passion for one another, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues. When Mordred, King Arthur’s illegitimate son, catches on and sees a kingdom in chaos, he attempts to destroy all that is Camelot! Intimate and fresh, never has this story of passion, pageantry and betrayal been more captivating. The celebrated score includes the classics “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” and the title song, “Camelot.”
