LAS VEGAS -- The Excalibur Hotel Casino here is serving up a new
dinner show in its recently renovated King Arthur's Arena.
"Tournament of Kings," a $1 million production that replaces the
long-running "King Arthur's Tournament," boasts new sets and
costumes as well as jousting and sword fighting.
The story begins with a sports competition held by King Arthur
in honor of his son, Christopher. Rival kings are on hand to test
their skills and join in the festivities, which are interrupted by
the evil fire wizard Mordred, invading armies and dragons.
The audience, too, is encouraged to get into the act, with
cheering and singing. The showroom, which recently underwent a $1.2
million face-lift, features new decor, lighting and a new sound
Audience members sit in one of eight sections named for each
country represented by the rival kings. The show is presented at 6
p.m. and 8:30 p.m. seven days a week. Tickets are $34.95 plus tax
per person; children age 3 and under are admitted free.
