Camelot—Rising Star Productions at Three Rivers Mall—Kelso, WA

"One Shining Moment…”

This beloved musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe is playing through April 27th in a storefront at Three Rivers Mall, just off I-5 in Kelso.  It is directed by Jueanne Meyers, vocal direction by Laurel Moore, choreography by Kristy Larson and Piano accompaniment by Greg Moore.  For more information, go to www.risingstarproductions.org.

There have many written and filmed versions of this classic legend of Camelot and King Arthur.  It was begun from a long poem by Tennyson.  The best of the books being T.H. White’s, The Once and Future King.  But even such famous writers as Steinbeck with his King Arthur and the Round Table and Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King. Arthur’s Court weighed in with their takes on this icon.  As for films, there was, of course, the movie of the musical and Disney’s animated, Sword and the Stone.  But the best was the non-musical, Excalibur, by John Boorman.
