The Lincoln Community Playhouse will become home to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table during the run of the classic Broadway musical, "Camelot."

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Sept. 15-16 and 21-23 and 2 p.m. Sept. 17 and 24 at 2500 S. 56th St.

Directed by Stuart Richey, the Lerner and Loewe musical tells the story of Arthur (Sam Ninegar), who hopes to create an idyllic kingdom guided by honor and righteousness, embodied by his knights.

But Arthur’s perfect world is an illusion; his wife Guinevere (Kyle Meter) secretly loves the handsome and noble knight, Lancelot (Sumaster T. Newell Jr.). With enchantment, pageantry and glorious melodies, the musical won’t “Let it be forgot/That once there was a spot/For one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.”

The "Camelot" cast also includes Kent Steen, Reed Westerhoff, Noah Trumble, Annaliese Saathoff, Danny Johnson, Amy Koepke, Kameron Archer, Sam Pynes, Tory Petz, Marie Barrett, Rachele Brown, Jameson Bellairs, JoanAnn Blomstedt, Joy Blythe, Emory Brown, Alena Chistopolskaia, Starla Eve Kramer, Rebecca Ellen Nelson, Jake Parker and Rebekah Sweeney.

The score includes the memorable ballads "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "I Loved You Once in Silence."

Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. Children under 4 are not allowed. For reservations, go to or call 402-489-7529.
