A veteran of such Broadway musicals as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and the recent Grease revival, as well as tours including The Sound of Music, Boone will now take on the slightly more racy role of Queen Guinevere, pulled between the King of England and his favorite Gallic knight-warrior. Julie Andrews originated the role on Broadway. Boone is the daughter of crooner Pat Boone, and had a hit with the pop song "You Light Up My Life."
Casting for the male principal roles is not yet public.
Performances play Sept. 10-18. Performances are at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium in the BTi Center for the Performing Arts.
