CHATHAM, N.Y, — The Mac-Haydn Theatre kicks off its 51st season this weekend with the Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe musical, "Camelot," beginning Thursday and running through June 2.

This popular Lerner and Loewe show tells the tale of the legendary love triangle between King Arthur, Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot. The fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance as a young idealistic Arthur, with his roundtable, tries to maintain honor and dignity.

Stepping into the role of King Arthur is Mac-Haydn veteran Gabe Belyeu, beginning his 10th season in Chatham. He appeared in last season's "Damn Yankees," "Mamma Mia," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Annie."

Madison Stratton returns to The Mac-Haydn as Guenevere after her performance as Tonya in last season's "Mamma Mia." Madison's New York credits include "Baby," and the national tour of "Ragtime."

Nick Miller makes his Mac-Haydn debut as Sir Lancelot. Miller was recently seen as Falstaff in Mixed Precipitation's "Merry Wives of Windsor," Plunkett in Utopia Opera's "Martha" and Judd in the Engeman Theatre's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" which he will reprise in Mac-Haydn's production in August.

Fresh off the national tour of "Spamalot," Dakota Dutcher returns to the Mac in the roles of Merlyn and Pellinore. Dutcher was seen last season as Cliff Bradshaw in the Berkshire Theatre Award-nominated "Cabaret."

Rounding out the cast are Mac-Haydn alumni Emma Flynn and Gino Cardoni as Morgan Le Fey and Mordred, respectively. The two were members of the resident company in the 2018 season, during which Cardoni was seen as Sky in "Mamma Mia" and Flynn as Holly in "The Wedding Singer."
