Due to its popularity during the summer and avid interest expressed by the cruise ship passengers that visit Newport in September and October, St. Mary’s has scheduled additional public performances of “Return to Camelot” this fall.

The presentation features vintage film clips and a live performance of music and song from the Kennedy wedding ceremony and reception at Hammersmith Farm, Jackie’s childhood summer home in Newport.
