It's got 'em all--knights, kings and queens--and they all sing and dance. Monty Python has nothing to do with this, and I know it doesn't sound like the best evening ever, but trust me, you've gotta see Camelot. The Lerner and Loewe musical opened on Broadway in 1959 starring Richard Burton as good King Arthur and Julie Andrews as his (gasp, adulterous) Queen Guinevere, telling the story of Arthur and the rise and fall of the knights of the round table. Though it went on to become a beloved musical, the opening was rocky, and the production was headed toward a closing when a well-timed TV spot saved it, according to Julie Andrews' autobiography (yes, I'm the dork who actually read that). The show caught on and has been performed across the country ever since. Now, you've got the chance to see it at Artisan Center Theater, 418 E. Pipeline Road in Hurst. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, with additional showtimes through January 29. Tickets are $16, $14 for students and seniors, and $9 for children. Call 817-284-1200 or visit artisanct.com.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 3 p.m. Starts: Dec. 31. Continues through Jan. 29, 2010
