Thanks again to Sharon Allen for
her wonderful review of First City Players production of Camelot.
The cast and crew were excellent, and I agree with her review
on all points except one. She said Wayne Phillips (Lancelot)
was "...more and actor than a singer." Wayne's deep,
rich voice was one of the highlites of the show for me. After
he finished "C'est Moi" I had to cheer.
This cast had very strong vocal
leads, but Wayne's voice impressed me the most. I eagerly look
forward to hearing him again in the next FCP musical.
Keep up the good work Sharon!
You're doing a great job promoting the arts in Ketchikan. And
a big "Thank You" to Sitnews for the local coverage.

City Players' Camelot Opens Season with A ROUND TABLE, A LOVE
TRIANGLE AND a beloved line SPOKEN... By SHARON ALLEN - This
past Thursday night, Camelot, Lerner & Lowe's musical adaptation
of the classic Arthurian legend, opened to an enthusiastic crowd
at the Kayhi auditorium. As First City Players' first performance
of the season, it showcased yet another cast of our surprisingly
talented neighbors, set upon a spectacular circular turning stage
made royal with rich and imaginative sets. The costumes
were resplendent, the music upbeat and hummingly familiar, the
choreography fun and full of entertaining originality and the
acting both well-done and well-directed. All together,
Camelot delivered just what it promised: romance, intrigue, humor
and a night filled with the kind of magic not soon to be forgot.
