Camelot & Camelittle

Submitted image.

Move over knights, there’s a new girl in town. The Phipps Children’s Theater presents a fresh and sassy new take on the classic story of “Camelot” in this new production opening on Friday, Oct. 15, in the John H. Potter Theater.

In this twist on the legend of Camelot, spunky, young Ruth dreams of being a Knight of the Round Table, but King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot laugh at her when she tries to demonstrate her valor. Humiliated, she sets off to form her own queendom, encountering the enchanting Lady of the Lake, a bumbling Merlin, a vain unicorn and evil sorcerers along the way.

The cast includes twenty students, grades seventh through ninth, from local communities.
