‘Camelot’ highlight for Goodspeed

Lerner to work on show edit

A revised look at “Camelot” will highlight the 2009 season at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Conn.

Michael Lerner, son of the show’s book writer and lyricist, will work further on the edit he did for the recent national tour of the show, according to a Goodspeed spokesman. Rob Ruggiero (Off Broadway’s “Make Me a Song: The Music of William Finn”) will helm the show, which will run July 10-Sept. 19.

The season kicks off with “42nd Street” April 17-June 28 in a production staged by Ray Roderick, who helmed the theater’s “Singin’ in the Rain” production last year. Rick Conant will choreograph.

The season will end with “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” helmed by Ted Pappas and running Sept. 25-Nov. 29.

There will be a holiday show yet to be announced. This year the theater began holiday offerings with the preem of “Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas,” in association with Jim Henson Co.

Shows for Goodspeed Musical’s second stage at the Norma Terris Theater in Chester, Conn., have not yet been announced.
