A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is adapted from the classic by Mark Twain by Tim Kelly and performed with permission by Pioneer Drama Service.
Hank Morgan, played by senior Armani Balaguer, is a teenager who gets knocked out working on his school’s stage crew, and finds himself transported back to the thrilling days of King Arthur (Steven Baltsas), Queen Guenevere (Therese Fischer) and the Knights and Ladies of the Round Table. Hank, who has been studying astronomy, predicts an eclipse of the sun and is hailed a great wizard. He is knighted ’Sir Boss’ and sets about modernizing Camelot, complete with telephones, bicycles, and T-shirts. But the king’s wicked half-sister, Morgan Le Fay, played by Angelique Kortright, plots against Camelot, planning an invasion with her own army. ’Sir Boss’ overcomes the evil plot and finds his way back to Hartford, Connecticut, in this fun adventure for all ages. Directed by Angelique Kortright ('18) and Annie Reid ('19) and Stage Manager Daneen Ramondino ('20).
