The ever-popular London Musical Theatre Orchestra have announced star-studded casting for Camelot In Concert, a one-night-only performance at the London Palladium.
Bringing the four-time Tony-winning Lerner and Loewe masterpiece Camelot back to the stage, David Thaxton (recently in Les Misérables) will play Arthur. He stars alongside Savannah Stevenson (Wicked) as Guenevere and Charles Rice (The Barber Of Seville) as Lancelot.
Also performing will be Sam Swann as Mordred, Clive Carter as Pellinore/Merlyn, Celinde Schoenmaker as Nimue, Matthew McKenna as Sir Dinadan, Emmanuel Kojo as Sir Lionel, Oliver Savile as Sir Sagramore, and Raphael Higgins-Humes as Tom of Warwick.
The chorus includes Jake Byrom, Elissa Churchill, Charlotte Clitherow, Ed Court, Emma Fraser, Lee van Geelen, Erin Hair, Daniel Hall, Adam Hepworth, Matthew McDonald, Emma Oliver, Cameron Potts, Lydia Shaw, Rosie Williamson, Lizzie Wofford and Thomas Wright.
Packed with some of musical theatre’s best songs, LMTO’s concert version of Camelot, replete with full orchestra, will celebrate the centenary of Alan Jay Lerner’s birth at the majesty of the Palladium.
This much-loved musical brings the legend of King Arthur to vivid life with an extraordinary score and book based on T.H. White’s novel The Once And Future King.
The London Musical Theatre Orchestra is conducted by founder Freddie Tapner, who said: “I’m extraordinarily excited to have this sensational cast join LMTO at the London Palladium for Camelot, led by Olivier Award-winner David Thaxton and Savannah Stevenson.
“Camelot hasn’t been seen in the West End for 30 years, and we can’t wait to share this glorious score with you on Saturday 6th October.”
