Camelot features such well-known songs as “If Ever I Would Leave You,” and “What Do The Simple Folk Do?”. Adapted from the T.H. White novel The Once and Future King, the musical follows the legend of King Arthur, who becomes king after pulling the sword Excalibur from its stone. Arthur builds his just kingdom alongside Queen Guinevere, but complications arise when she and Lancelot become entwined and Arthur's illegitimate son arrives in Camelot.
