ICT Presents Camelot in Concert: One Weekend Only Oct. 2-4, 2009

In the glow of roaring success from Indianapolis Civic Theatre’s production of Evita, they present the Duke Energy Broadway Series Friday, October 2. You can catch this concert style presentation of the music from Camelot through the weekend (October 4). Tickets are $24.00 and the curtain goes up on Marian University’s campus at 7:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and 2:00 pm on Sunday.

Indianapolis Civic Theatre, in-conjunction with Duke Energy, presents the new Broadway Concert Series. This year the concert series venue will spotlight the music of Lerner and Loewe, a music and lyrics team from the hay day of Broadway. Inspired by the popular New York Encore Series, these concert-style presentations will feature on-stage orchestration with an emphasis on story and song. The series kicks off with Camelot.

Camelot is a celebrated musical and Tony Award winner. It follows the smash hit My Fair Lady on the resumes of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. This musical tells the King Arthur legend with his Knights of the Round Table as adapted from the T.H. White tetra-logy novel The Once and Future King. Featuring a superb score, the story centers on the affair between Arthur’s wife, Queen Guenevere and his best friend and knight Sir Lancelot. This love triangle is beautifully captured and preserved in numbers such “If Ever I Would Leave You” and “I Loved You Once in Silence.”

The Indianapolis Civic Theatre will no doubt crank out another hit after they tasted success with their popular production of Evita last month. Do not miss your chance to relive the time of old and the adventure in the stories you loved as a child. Hear the songs from Camelot that turned King Arthur into the King of Broadway.

This is a one weekend only Indianapolis event. Only three days to see this Indianapolis performing arts groups pull out all the stops to contribute to Indianapolis music. After taking in some Indianapolis culture via some great Indianapolis theatre, consider going out for a night in the Circle City. With dozens of great Indianapolis bars and Indianapolis restaurants waiting for you to come through the doors, why not find out what Indy has to offer.
