The London Musical Theatre Orchestra has announced the final member of its cast for its upcoming concert production of Camelot at the London Palladium.
Lerner and Loewe’s musical based on T. H. White’s novel The Once And Future King will return to the West End for the first time in over thirty years, with this new concert performance presented by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra at the London Palladium on the 6th October.
The cast for the concert performance will be led by Olivier Award-winner David Thaxton as Arthur, Guenevere will be played by Savannah Stevenson and Lancelot will be played by internationally renowned opera star Charles Rice. They will be joined on stage by Sam Swann as Mordred, Clive Carter as of Pellinore and Merlyn. Elsewhere, Nimue will be played by Celinde Schoenmaker, Matthew McKenna will play Sir Dinadan, Sir Lionel will be played by Emmanuel Kojo, Sir Sagramore will be played by Oliver Savile and Raphael Higgins-Humes (Lion King / Motown The Musical / Matilda The Musical) will play Tom of Warwick.
Talking about the news founder and conductor of the London Musical Theatre Orchestra Freddie Tapner 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. I’m particularly thrilled to introduce opera star, Charles Rice, to musical theatre fans – I know you’ll fall in love with his voice, just as we did at LMTO HQ when we found him. 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.”
When Guenevere falls for Lancelot, one of the Knights of the Round Table, Arthur’s loyalties and beliefs are tested, and the fate of his beloved Camelot hangs in the balance. Songs in Lerner and Loewe’s musical include “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “How To Handle A Woman”, “The Lusty Month of May” and “Camelot”.
Camelot will be presented by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra on the 6th October at the London Palladium.
