February 22, 2005

[ Boy Gets Girl ] DELAWARE, OHIO -- The Ohio Wesleyan University Departments of Theatre & Dance and Music will collaborate to present Camelot on the main stage of the Chappelear Drama Center April 1, 2 and 8-10. All shows begin at 8 p.m. except the matinee performance on April 10 at 2 p.m.

The OWU production of Camelot involves over 60 Ohio Wesleyan students in the cast and crew, and the performance will be included in the inaugural festivities of Dr. Mark Huddleston, 15th President of Ohio Wesleyan University.

A winner of four Tony Awards, the classic Lerner and Loewe musical, originally starring Julie Andrews and Richard Burton, has captured the imaginations of audiences worldwide for generations. This timeless tale of chivalry, romance, loyalty, and betrayal is taken from the ancient legends of King Arthur and The Knights of The Round Table. Based upon The Once and Future King written by T.H. White, the musical takes the audience on a dramatic journey of love, inspiration, despair, and ultimate hope for the future.

Ohio Wesleyan's performance of Camelot is directed by Elane Denny-Todd, associate professor of theatre and dance at OWU with musical direction by Jason Hiester, assistant professor of music at OWU. Scenic design is by D. Glen Vanderbilt, Jr., professor of theatre and dance at OWU. Light design is by guest artist Jeff Grass and choreography is by guest artist Tim Veach. Costume design is by Jacqueline Shelley. Jesse Fromosky, a junior theatre major at OWU, is the stage manager.
