MUNCIE – Caleb Roberts will perform as Tom of Warwick in Broadway’s “Camelot” when it appears at Emens Auditorium on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
His previous credits include A Year with Frog and Toad, Jr. (Toad), My Son Pinocchio (Marionette Boy), and Seussical the Musical, Jr. (The Grinch). But next month, Roberts, 10, will share the stage with traveling professionals for the Broadway production of “Camelot” at Emens Auditorium.
A student at Heritage Hall Christian School, Roberts was one of five boys who auditioned last month for the role of Tom of Warwick. Recorded auditions were sent to the casting director at Phoenix Entertainment, a Maryland-based company that takes Broadway shows around the world.
Camelot tells the story of the legend of King Arthur who rules his kingdom with new ideals, bringing peace to a troubled land. But when his beautiful new Queen Guinevere and the dashing Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, give in to their passion for one another, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues. When Mordred, King Arthur’s illegitimate son, catches on and sees a kingdom in chaos, he attempts to destroy all that is Camelot!
Intimate and fresh, never has this story of passion, pageantry and betrayal been more captivating. The celebrated score includes the classics “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood,” and the title song, “Camelot.”
