TriArts Sharon Playhouse opens its 2013 season with the Tony Award-winning musical Monty Python's Spamalot, featuring Broadway cast member Thomas Cannizzaro as King Arthur, June 26 for a run through July 7.



Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Werner, the associate director of Broadway's The Book of Mormon, the cast also features Bethany Fagan as Lady of the Lake, Jared Weiss as Sir Robin, Brandon Cordeiro as Sir Lancelot, Harrison Post as Patsy, Stephen Eckelmann as Sir Galahad, Mark Devey as Sir Bedevere and Kenny Francoeur as Prince Herbert.

Rounding out the cast are Philip Colgan, Dan Coombs, Rosalee DeHuff, Garrett Hill, Kiley Hinkle, Jane Kivnick, Emily Neuberger, Jake Satterfield, George Slotin, Madeleine Sykes, Eric Brian Waters and Kaylee Verble.

Monty Python's Spamalot, according to TriArts, "is an outrageous musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film classic 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail.' With music and lyrics by the Grammy-Award winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez and book by Eric Idle, Spamalot tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls, flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen and show-stopping musical numbers?"

Other members of the creative team include Eric Kang (music director), Erik Diaz (set designer), Michelle Humphrey (costume designer), Chris Dallos (lighting designer), Brad Berridge (sound designer) and Thomas Coppola (production stage manager).

TriArts Sharon Playhouse is under the leadership of executive director Alice Bemand and artistic director John Simpkins.

TriArts Sharon Playhouse is located at 49 Amenia Road (Route 343). For more information and tickets, visit TriArts.net or call (860) 364-7469.
