The creator of Excalibur, Alan Simon, said this of the tour: "Excalibur is back, with a full orchestra, special guest cast members, an aerial dancer along with King Arthur and Merlin as they battle evil forces. I have written an all new show, with a story set 1000 years after the famous legends we performed in 2011, and everything is ready to be unleashed on new audiences. This is the first Excalibur tour in nearly five years!"
