Michael York, Rachel York, and James Barbour will play King Arthur, Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot, respectively, in the beloved Alan Jay Lerner-Frederick Loewe musical Camelot, which will play the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts in La Mirada, California, January 12-28. A national tour, which is expected to last at least six months, will then launch January 30 in San Jose, California.

The production will be directed by Glenn Casale. The cast will also include Shannon Stoeke (Mordred), Tim Winters (Pellinore), Eric Anderson (Merlyn), and Tavis Danz (Young Arthur). The show's creative team features choreographer Dan Mojica, set designer John Iacovelli, sound designer Julie Ferrin, lighting designer Tom Ruzika, and musical director Craig Barna.

Michael York appeared on Broadway in Bent, The Crucible, and Someone Who'll Watch Over Me. His film credits include Cabaret, Something for Everyone, and Murder on the Orient Express. Rachel York's Broadway credits include Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Sly Fox, Victor/Victoria, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and City of Angels. Barbour's Broadway credits include Jane Eyre, Assassins, Urinetown, and Beauty and the Beast.

The 1960 musical, based on T.H. White's novel The Once and Future King, received four Tony Awards, including Best Actor for Richard Burton, but was not nominated for Best Musical. Julie Andrews was the original Guenevere. The show has been revived three times on Broadway, once with Burton and Christine Ebersole, once with Richard Harris and Meg Bussert, and once with Robert Goulet (the original Lancelot) and Patricia Kies. The 1967 film version starred Harris, Vanessa Redgrave, and Franchot Tone.
