The story of Camelot is one of grandeur and intrigue. At curtain, the entire court of Camelot nervously awaits the arrival of future Queen Guenevere (Ginny Ann Black) while King Arthur (Larry Buchanan) has run away into the forest to hide from his awful destiny, marriage. Terrified Arthur tries to cajole Merlyn (Mike Ramage), his wizard teacher, into telling him about Guenevere. In an unusual Meeting Guenevere and Arthur fall in love. During Merlyn's weapon the next wisdom, five years, Arthur is dissatisfied with his success as king. Applying of right.

Lancelot arrives and immediately makes many enemies because of his goodness and purity. Before long Lancelot finds himself in love with Queen Guenevere. While Lancelot is miserably nursing his love for Ginny, Mordred (Arthur Moore), the illegitimate son of Arthur, appears at Camelot. This young villain tries to ruin Arthur's dream of a perfect society. Finally, Mordred catches Lance and Ginny and has the queen arrested for her infidelity. Arthur now has to decide if he will abide by the law and allow his wife to be burned at the stake or if he will allow his principles to be destroyed by freeing Guenevere. Succeeding events shatter Arthur's dream, but determined not to let it die completely, he charges Tom of Warwick (David Cooper} to tell the world of the fleeti'ng grandeur which he had known .... That once there was a spot, For one brief shining moment, That was known as CAMELOT.
