My friend and I enjoyed this and we thought all of the actors did very well. Camelot is slow moving in general and the songs are not show stoppers by any means. Still the cast gave a wonderful performance. First half was a bit long. The second...continued

Johnny Moreno (King Arthur) has that star quality, and whenever he was acting or singing, it was really excellent. The rest of the production really didn't work for me. I thought that the acting was weak, and the attempt to turn this into a...continued

This is a very difficult show to produce requiring not only excellent vocal talents, but strong actors. This production,using local performers, succeeds in reaching these goals, especially the male cast. The weak performance by Monique Hafen...continued

After SF Playhouse's terrific "My Fair Lady" and "Abigail's Party," this feels like a misstep. Though Monique Hafen is terrific as Guenevere, Johnny Moreno lacks the charm he had playing Henry Higgins, and Wilson Jermaine Heredia as Lancelot is...continued

Loved it! Our seats were perfect, and the play was great. Arthur and Lancelot were wonderfully cast, and the whole production was smooth and very professional.

Just really excellent production, I loved it, in spite of poor seat/sightlines, which seems to be par for the course for their Goldstar patrons. The acting and play selections, however, are worth the neck pain from trying to view the action from...continued

This musical play was really wonderful, with the great voices of King Arthur, Guenevere and Lancelot adding significant charm. The songs bring me back to a very special place like Camelot. The set design was beautiful, smart, and looked...continued

The set was very impressive, even before the show began. Too bad it had obstructed sightlines from my seat at the end of the front row. The company seemed overwhelmed with the set and uncomfortable with the slope on part of the set. Lancelot...continued

The energy seemed very low at the performance we attended. The fights either needed to be more realistic, or more stylized. We've seen other productions by many of this company that we loved, so we expected better.

We left during intermission. I'm a fan of the movie with Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave. Althought the actors who played Arthur and Genevere were good it seemed more like a High School production vs. a playhouse production. The speed of...continued

It was a fun and enjoyable evening being able to watch a great musical play produced in a small theatre environment. The small cast performed superbly. The intimate and cozy theatre made my wife and I feel relaxed and comfortable. The volunteer...continued

The three of us were disappointed. I think Bill English was too ambitious. the set was clunky and massive and turned this way and that but it felt intrusive. Of course it was a preview and will get better but the only actor singer (in he three...continued

Did not find "gritty." We thought it was traditional, very well-acted with great set

A great set, especially with the wide screen backdrop, the images displayed on the screen really helped add to the production, very well sung by all the performers, enjoyable! My only comment would be that it was a little long, perhaps tighter...continued
