Travel Back to Camelot at Webb’s ‘Yankee in King Arthur’s Court,’ March 1-4
Webb’s Upper School drama department will bring to life Mark Twain’s comedy classic, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, Thursday, March 1 through Sunday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Webb’s Bishop Center. There will also be a matinee on Saturday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m.
Staged in the round, audience members will experience, close-up, the madcap adventures of Hank Morgan, who, while at his high school reunion, bumps his head and is transported back to the time of King Arthur, Lancelot, Lady Guinevere, and Merlin. Morgan amazes the Royal Court with his 21st century knowledge and gadgets, and after predicting an eclipse of the sun, he is hailed a great wizard and knighted “Sir Boss.”
Morgan sets out to modernize Camelot, but his good intentions soon turn everything upside down, and he finds himself embroiled in trying to save the kingdom from an evil plot. How “Sir Boss” saves Camelot and finds his way back to Hartford, Connecticut and true love provides plenty of excitement and tongue-in-cheek fun for all guests.
