A Look into the Kingdom of Camelot Through the Eyes of Tom of Warwick
2015-06-11 CATEGORY: Broadway
The national touring production of Camelot shines on the Starlight stage this week and three very talented local boys get to join the cast. Sixth-grader Maddox Carter Bane, fourth-grader Marek Burns and eighth-grade student Andrew Stout are alternating playing the role of Tom of Warwick for the six nights the show is in Kansas City. On opening night, the boys came to Starlight hours before the curtain rose to get familiar with the stage, try on their costumes and practice their lines. Follow these local Tom of Warwicks and see what a show night for these young actors looks like!
