‘Camelot’ comes alive at North Fork Community Theatre

The North Fork Community Theatre is presenting a classic this weekend, as they bring “Camelot” to life on the Mattituck stage.

The show, which opened Thursday, runs through May 31.

The 1960 musical, a beloved Tony award winner, was created by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, and is based on T. H. White’s book, “The Once and Future King.”

Audiences have long embraced the piece, which transports viewers back to a “the age of chivalry and the tumultuous love triangle between King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and Sir Lancelot. A doomed romance, a yearning for the once and future better world and magical music define a show for the ages and the entire family,” the NFCT website states.

The NFCT’s production is directed by Caroline Ciochetto, with musical direction by Nancy Deegan, and produced by Babette Comina.

Performances will be held today at 8 p.m., Sunday at 2:30 p.m,, and on May 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30 and 31. All shows are 8 p.m. except for Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.  Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at 631-298-NFCT or www.nfct.com.

Student rush tickets may be purchased for $15 at the box office beginning 10 minutes before each performance. These tickets are subject to availability and cannot be reserved
