The upcoming outdoor production of Lerner and Loewe’s “Camelot,” August 3-6, 7 p.m., at the CRS Barn Studio, features a number of Cornell staff, faculty, students and alumni, including director Steven Stull, visiting lecturer in the Department of Music, as Arthur; Bill Cowdery, public services assistant in the music library, as chorus master and pianist; and David Neal ’76, as Merlyn. Several members of the chorus are also affiliated with Cornell: John Bunge is a professor in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations; Lisa Frank works at the Cornell Alumni Magazine; and Jack Press ’18 and Alina Robin ’19 are current Cornell students.

This tale of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, Sir Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table, presented by Triphammer Arts, will be set against a backdrop of lush green fields and sweeping views of Cayuga Lake at sunset, and features the classic Broadway songs, “If ever I would leave you,” “The lusty month of May,” “The seven deadly virtues,” and “Camelot!”

Outdoor seating is provided at the venue. Several green and shady locations suitable for a pre-performance picnic are also available. The grounds and box office open at 6 p.m., one hour before show time. Ticket prices are $20 general public, $18 seniors, $15 students. Young children are admitted free of charge.
