Theatre at the Center presents the Tony Award-winning musical Spamalot, starting this evening.

The "musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture" follows King Arthur and his band of raunchy, rowdy Knights of the Round Table in their pursuit of the Holy Grail. Their quest leads them from a French castle, to the dangerous clutches of the Black Knight, to a rendezvous with the knights who say knee, and, ultimately, to an intimate liaison with the Lady of the Lake. Along the way they encounter dancing divas, a legless knight, flatulent Frenchmen, and killer rabbits. The show features a bevy of well-known silly songs, such as "I Am Not Dead Yet," "The Song that Goes Like This," and "The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part)."

Featuring the well-known book and lyrics by Eric Idle alongside a new score by Idle and John Du Prez, this production is directed by David Perkovich and choreographed by Linda Fortunato. Larry Adams leads the cast as King Arthur and is supported by Colette Todd, Patrick Tierney, Greg Foster, Sean Fortunato, Larry Wyatt, Jarrod Zimmerman, and Jake Mahler. The ensemble comprises Katheryn Patton, David Schlumpf, Ann Delaney, Steve Peebles, Kayla Kennedy, Henry McGinniss, Amanda Lauren Compton, and Nathan Mittleman.

The creative team includes Angie Miller (set design), Brenda Winstead (costume design), Denise Karczewski (lighting design), Barry G. Funderburg (sound design), Brittney O’Keefe (props design), Kevin Barthel (wig design), Bill Underwood (music director), and Matt McMullen and Daniel Hanson (stage managers).

Performances will run through October 18.
