Delightful is the best way to describe the opening performance of the Cedar Springs High School’s production of Lerner and Loewe’s classic musical Camelot, under the direction of Linda Martino. Ryan Shaw directed the pit and Kassandra Brott was the student director.
Strong performances were given by the leads Jenna Johnson (Guenevere), Justin Balczak (Arthur), Jared Kelley (Lancelot), Jeff Meinke (Pellinore), Steve Reed (Merlin), Miles Johnson (Mordred), and Emily Marckini (Morgan Le Fey), all seniors.
All of the cast did a wonderful job, with the jousting scene being the best, as everyone urged their favorites on, only to be bested by Lancelot.
The set was well designed and as a result scene changes took a minimum of time and effort. Lighting and sound were also well done.
It is apparent that a great deal of passionate effort went into the performance, for which they can all be proud.
