The Power of Camelot | British Youth Music Theatre

Current shows

A retelling of the Arthur and Camelot stories, inspired by the ancient mythologies of Wales, Ireland, Scotland and the West Country.

Long ago, when King Arthur was on his deathbed, he gave the power to rule Camelot to four Guardians, from four corners of the realm. However, they failed to work together and the kingdom fell to ruin. Now, we join Morgan, the descendent of one of these Guardians, on an epic quest to find the source of Camelot’s power, to redeem her family name and stop a band of evil knights from getting there first. On her way, she meets monsters, magical creatures, sorcerers and ghosts, and teams up with an unlikely band of guardians who don’t always agree. Can they all come together as a team, or will a dark force rise up to destroy the land of Albion while they bicker?

The Power of Camelot explores what makes a good team, ancestry, and the majesty of the four countries of the UK, with an epic and eclectic score. In this grand modern day quest we meet punk pop fairies, a country-ballad singing Lady of the Lake, rapping ghosts and Glastonbury festival-goers.
