KATV Interviews the Camelot Creative Team

Director Rod A. Lansberry, Costume Designer Clare Henkel, Scenic Designer Brian Mallgrave and Fight Director Benaiah Anderson were recently interviewed by KATV! They talked about Camelot, and all of the research that has gone into the making of this great show.

Learn what exactly a dramaturgy is, how “Game of Thrones” and “Lord of the Rings” were used as part of the inspiration for the costume designs and fight scenes, and how these four people play a huge role in bringing Camelot to life. Check out the interviews below!

Remember, due to high demand for this show, ticket prices will increase September 5! Get your tickets today!

The 2013-2014 Season Begins with the Camelot Meet and Greet

Cast of Camelot

This looks like a cast who is going to have a lot of fun together.

Yes, it is that time again. Camelot show rehearsals began yesterday, as the cast and crew got together with the Arvada Center staff for the Arvada Center’s traditional Meet and Greet.

But there were no Santiago’s breakfast burritos in sight this time. Instead, the Performing Arts Committee brought in British food from The Chit Chat Bistro to fit the Camelot theme. Shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, roast beef sandwiches and a cake with the Camelot set photo by Brian Mallgrave on top.

After listening to a few announcements from Director Rod Lansberry and Production Stage Manager Lisa Kurtz, rehearsals began, and the cast and crew were hard at work.

Down in the Prop Shop armor and shields were being polished, costumes and wigs were being fitted and everyone was preparing for this amazing season opener.
