Chivalry, passion, and betrayal! The timeless tale of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, Sir Lancelot, and the Knights of the Round Table is set against a backdrop of lush green fields and sweeping views of Cayuga Lake at sunset, and features the classic Broadway songs, 'If ever I would leave you,' 'The lusty month of May,' 'The Seven Deadly Virtues,' and - of course - 'Camelot!'

This lively, beautifully costumed production stars nationally-known artists Steven Stull as Arthur, Ivy Walz as Guenevere, and Erik Angerhofer as Lancelot, with Andrew Hudson-Sabens as the evil conniver, Mordred and a chorus of thirty knights and ladies of the court. WCNY Radio host Bruce Paulsen plays King Pellinore. Camelot is directed by Steven Stull, in collaboration with music director Richard Montgomery, keyboardist William Cowdery, and choreographer Jeanne Goddard.

The Hangar Theatre will present the world premiere of Mimi Quillin's play Dégagé (disengage) from July 20 until July 29, 2017. Blending jazz, ballet, and musical theatre dance styles with popular music, Dégagé (disengage) follows the story of The Dancer as she becomes the artist-in-residence in a hospice. Inspired by the patients and their unique stories, The Dancer comes to terms with her own artistry and humanity. Dégagé (disengage) will be directed by the Hangar's Artistic Director Michael Barakiva and choreographed by the playwright, Mimi Quillin.

Dégagé (disengage) is the first world premiere on the Hangar stage since 2011. Hangar's artistic director, Michael Barakiva, says he is "thrilled to present this never-before-seen work, fresh off the vine." Barakiva will be directing this piece alongside playwright and choreographer, Mimi Quillin (you might have seen the work of this dynamic duo in Hangar's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Form earlier this season). Quillin has been dancing since age five and has worked alongside some of Broadway's greatest choreographers including Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. As a dancer and an actress, she has been seen on Broadway in the revival of Sweet Charity, Ragtime and Ain't Broadway Grand.
