“Pendragon” has Music by Peter Allwood: Book and Lyrics by Peter Allwood, Joanna Horton, Jeremy James Taylor and Frank Whatley…

King Arthur Pendragon, Guinevere, Merlin, Morgan le Fay and the Knights of the Round Table – the famous legend was made into a stage show especially for the National Youth Music Theatre!

It is a thrilling exploration of the darker depths of Arthurian legend, the smash hit of the 1994 Edinburgh Festival Fringe has now been staged in London and New York. Comedy, poetry, puppetry, magic, mime and an uplifting musical score make Pendragon a spectacular theatrical experience

LATA chose this show, due to the amazing range of skills that would need to be learnt to perform this show, including, puppetry, magic and mime! Even though the story is a darker version of the legend, and mostly sung through, it was nice to do something in Contrast to the cheery Barnum and romantic West Side Story!
