Spamalot, the stage version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, opened at the Amelia Musical Playhouse on March 17th. Performances continue March 24, 25, 26, and 31, April 1 and 2nd, with an April 3rd matinee at 2:30.
Directed by Arlene Filkoff, this show is vintage Monty Python and is a fun view of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Veteran local actor Geoffrey King is appropriately imperious as King Arthur and Mary Williams lends her golden voice to the Lady of the Lake. Knights are played by Jimmy Kalista, Judge Bob Williams, Tim Ross and Don Bingham. They are supported, as all proper knights are, by an ensemble of actors and actresses who will sing and dance their way into your hearts. Choreography is by Jennifer McCarthy a fabulous talent in our community. These dancers go from “tap” to cha cha to Fosse type slinking without missing a beat.
Sets were designed and constructed to make the magic happen by Gregg Dillingham, Jimmy Kalista and Steve Filkoff. Music directors Ronnie Luallen and Jill Dillingham, along with conductor Richard Williams lead a fabulous orchestra which once again helps to make Amelia Musical Playhouse unique with live music. Rachel Tyler proves that she is a mistress of costumes extraordinaire and Alexa Bishop has found props for every part of Arthur’s kingdom which is all of Britain and even tiny little bits of Gaul.
