PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Public Theater will present the musical "Camelot," directed by Ted Pappas, Jan. 20 through Feb. 20 at the O'Reilly Theater.

With a book and lyrics written by Alan Jay Lerner and music composed by Frederick Loewe, Camelot evokes the court of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

Songs include "The Lusty Month of May," "How to Handle a Woman," "Before I Gaze at You Again," "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "Camelot."

King Arthur will be played by New Zealand-native Hayden Tee, and Kimberly Burns will star opposite Tee as Guenevere. Burns' credits include leading roles in "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and "The Pirates of Penzance."

Also featured are Keith Hines as Sir Lancelot, Noble Shropshire as Pellinore, Alex Coleman as Merlyn, Don DiGiulio as Mordred and Daisy Hobbs as Nimue.

The role of Tom will be shared by Joshua Brelsford and Dustin Butoryak. Dieter Bierbrauer, Greggory Brandt, Mark Campbell, Joe Jackson, Joe Paparella, Jonathan Pendergrass, Matthew Charles Thompson, Ben Thorpe, Theodore Watts, Zanna Fredland, Amanda Frennier, Christina McCann and Sarah Ziegler play knights, ladies and pages.

The orchestra will perform under the musical direction of F. Wade Russo.

Camelot's design team is James Noone, scenic; Alejo Vietti, costumes; Kirk Bookman, lighting; and Zach Moore, sound. Ruth E. Kramer is the production stage manager and Fredric H. Orner is the assistant stage manager.

Ticket prices are $40.75 to $65.75, and $15.75 for students and age 26 and younger.

The PNC Family Fun Pack is designed for patrons bringing children to "Camelot," which is recommended for ages 10 and up. For tickets, call (412) 316-1600 or visit
