Camelot first opened in 1960 and played for 873 performances on Broadway at the Majestic Theatre and for 518 performances in London at the Drury Lane Theatre. It starred Richard Burton as Arthur, Julie Andrews as Guenevere, and Robert Goulet as Lancelot. It was revived on Broadway in 1981 and again in 1987. Australian John Truscott won two Academy Awards for his designs for the film starring Vanessa Redgrave and Richard Harris. In 1964 he designed the first Australian production and then the London production.

This new staging for The Production Company by George Ogilvie starred Scott Irwin (Kiss Me, Kate, Annie Get Your Gun) as King Arthur, Katrina Retallick (South Pacific) as Guenevere and the legendary Dennis Olsen as Pellinore.

Glowing with melody and glittering with wit, Camelot is the powerful and tragic love story of King Arthur and Queen Guenevere and her love for the idyllic knight, Lancelot. Audiences delighted in this legendary tale of knights and intrigue, romance and betrayal, deception and hope.

Adapted by the creators of My Fair Lady from the T.H. White novel (The Once and Future King,) Camelot offers musical pageantry set amidst the splendour and magic of King Arthur's court. The score combines lyrical simplicity with a lush romanticism, beautifully captured in such numbers as "If Ever I Would Leave You", "I Loved You Once in Silence", and the witty "I Wonder What the King is Doing Tonight?"

“Don’t let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was known as Camelot.”
