The beloved musical “Camelot” explores one of the greatest romances of all time and paints a luminous picture of a fleeting moment when justice, peace and righteousness reigned supreme. While that moment must come to an end, we are asked to believe it could come again. Love, loss, humor, and regret pour forth from the acclaimed score, which includes classic songs such as “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight,” “If Ever I Would Leave You” and of course the title song, “Camelot.”

The creative team for Bay Street’s production of “Camelot” includes Scott Schwartz, director; Marcos Santana, choreographer; Matt Hinkley, music director; Andrew Diaz, scenic & props designer; Meghan O’Beirne, costume designer; Mike Billings, lighting designer; Shaughn Bryant, sound designer; Christine Catti, production stage manager; and Kelsy Durkin, stage manager.
