    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - DSU Theatre Presents Camelot, Nov. 7-9, 12-16 at 7:30 PM in the Eccles Fine Arts Mainstage Theater. Book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and musical score by Frederick Loewe. Directed by Kelly Thomas.

    Camelot is a touching musical adaptation of the story of Arthur and his nights of the round table. As a young king, Arthur is at first reluctant of his duty, doing his best to avoid an arranged marriage with the lady Guinevere. When later they meet by chance, Arthur’s and Guinevere’s hearts take a turn, and their story begins.

    Five years later in a kingdom bound for glory, Arthur and Guinevere are in the midst of forging a new ideal for Camelot as they begin to invite Knights that uphold honor and justice, instead of plundering and pillaging the villages. As their new ideal takes shape, however, even the most honorable find themselves caught in the enticing snares and forbidden paths of human existence. Their convoluted truths and desires wrap them up in one of the most exciting and fantastic legends enjoyed by millions.

    Born and raised in Washington DC, Kelly Thomas is a multi-disciplinary theatre artist, technician, and educator. She earned an MFA in Contemporary performance from Naropa University and her BA in Theatre from George Mason University. Currently, she is teaching theatre and performance at Dixie State University and The Stage Door in Southern Utah.
