Twentynine Palms Ca: Theatre 29 and Director Kathryn Ferguson are proud to announce casting selection for the fall musical production of Theatre 29’s 2013 season, the Broadway Smash Musical, “Monty Python’s Spamalot.” This musical, “lovingly ripped off” from the cult classic comedy team’s most famous motion picture "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," will take the stage for five weeks beginning August 23 through September 21. In this farcical re-telling of the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail, “Monty Python's Spamalot” features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits, catapulting cows, coconut carrying swallows and one legless knight. With a hilarious book and lyrical score by “Python” veteran Eric Idle, with music also by Idle and John Du Prez, this silly-as-you-like-it musical homage is a guaranteed laugh-out loud hit for young and old. This show does include some light language and mock violence (but, it is only a flesh wound!)
In the role of King Arthur, the genuine, but misguided leader of this band of wacky knights, is Charles Harvey. As his ever loyal “horse,” Patsy, is Gary Daigneault. The “Diva extraordinaire” Lady of the Lake, will be portrayed by Analisa Pilecki. The “Knights of the Round Table,” also playing multiple supporting roles as well are Kurt Schauppner as “The strangely flatulent” Sir Bedevere," Ben Bees as the “dashingly handsome” Sir Galahad, Jericho McWilliams as the “homicidally brave” Sir Lancelot and Leonard Weber as Sir Robin, “the not-quite-so-brave-as-Sir-Lancelot.” The supporting cast are represented in the “Laker Girls” Katie VanSumeren, Lizzie Schmelling, Cindy Ross, Linnea Hilderbrand and Brynn McDonald. The company is rounded out by Scott Clinkscales (as the Historian), Cyrus Short (Not Dead Fred and Prince Herbert), Nick Reiner (Sir Bors), Marv Schmelling (Knight of Ni), Cody Joseph (Finland Mayor), and James Hodgson.
