Tonight, the curtain descends upon Artisan Center Theater‘s production of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot. My final performance as King Arthur will be at today’s matinee.
My gratitude goes out to my wonderful cast for all their support and talent as well as our consistently sold-out audiences. Thank you for helping me realize one of my dream roles and for making this production a most memorable experience.
The sword is drawn from the stone tonight as Artisan Center Theater presents a special performance of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot during their New Year’s Eve gala, ringing out the old year and officially opening their 2011 season.
Established as a nonprofit community theater in 2003, Artisan Center Theater is home to a 150-seat theater in the round, producing up to ten shows per year. Camelot will run through January 29, 2011 at 418 East Pipeline Road in Hurst, Texas. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday matinees. Tickets may be purchased online at www.artisanct.com or by calling the box-office at 817-284-1200.
Directed by Dennis Canright and produced by DeeAnn Blair, Camelot utilizes two highly talented casts performing six shows a week. Sharing duties as King Arthur are Neil Rogers and award-winning actor Brad Stephens in his fourth Artisan appearance. Meredith Browning and Amanda Gupton perform as Queen Guenevere with Joel Lagrone and Kyle Holt in the role of Lancelot. Both casts are amazing so come see the show twice!

A classic of American musical theater, Camelot is based on the King Arthur legend as adapted from the T. H. White tetralogy novel The Once and Future King. The original 1960 production ran on Broadway for 873 performances, winning four Tony Awards and spawning several revivals, foreign productions and a 1967 film version. The original cast album was America’s top-selling LP for 60 weeks.
I am pleased to announce I have accepted the role of King Arthur in the upcoming Artisan Center Theater production of Lerner & Loewe’s Camelot.
This will be my fourth production with Artisan after performances as Nanki-Poo in Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado; Jeff Douglass in Lerner & Loewe’s Brigadoon; and Curly McClain in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! It will also be my second collaboration with director Dennis Canright who directed me in Oklahoma!
Based on The Once and Future King by T.H. White, Camelot is one of theater’s most beloved musicals. Relive the legend of King Arthur in an enchanting fable of chivalry and honor. Dazzling with romance, history and glorious music, it is a tale to be relived for all time.
Camelot will open on December 31, 2010 and run through January 29, 2011. The show is double-cast so check back soon for details on when I will be performing. For more information, visit www.artisanct.com.
This weekend sees the opening of Artisan Center Theater’s production of Brigadoon, Lerner & Loewe’s classic musical set in the highlands of Scotland. Enjoy a magical story about a village that appears once every hundred years and what happens to the travelers who stumble upon it. Visit a place where love and magic are one and the same. Swinging kilts, bagpipes and bonnie lassies will fill the stage with marvelous singing and dancing from start to finish.
Brigadoon – opening Friday, March 5 and running through Saturday, April 10, 2010 – is double-cast. I will be performing the role of Jeff Douglas every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening of the run, my opening performance taking place this Saturday, March 6, 2010. Performances are subject to change so keep an eye on my event calendar for my up-to-the-minute schedule. However, both casts are wonderful so come out and see the show when you can! In fact, why not see it twice?
