Central Texas may be slogging through a brutally hot and dry summer, but there is a place where the weather is kept mild, year ‘round, by legal decree: Camelot!

Escape the weather for a few hours this summer and enjoy a magical evening as Milam Community Theater presents one of the most beloved musicals of all time at the Performing Arts Center on the C.H. Yoe High School Campus in Cameron.

Camelot will close with shows Saturday, Aug. 6 at 7:30 and a final matinee Sunday, Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students and will be available at the door. Reservations are not required.
