Endicott Performing Arts Center presents “SPAMALOT!”
The Endicott Performing Arts Center Repertory Company will present the smash Broadway musical comedy “Spamalot” from November 8 – 17th at EPAC’s Robert Eckert Theater located at 102 Washington Avenue in Endicott. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM with Sunday matinees at 3PM
Rude Frenchmen, cancan dancers, the Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, Killer rabbits, catapulting cows, and the somewhat odd Knights who say "ni" are just part of the adventures and dangers awaiting King Arthur and his Knights of the very very very round table in their quest for the holy grail.
Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, “Spamalot” is the TONY award winning hit and irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend. It was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, winning three, including Best New Musical for 2005. During its initial run, it was seen by more than two million people.
Leading the quest is King Arthur (Chris Nickerson) along with his trusty servant Patsy (Jacob Weir). Playing his gallant knights (and a broad assortment of other characters) are Mike Farley* as Sir Lancelot the Homicidally Brave, Joseph Foti as Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot, Jason Cupelo as Sir Galahad, the Dashingly Handsome, Colin Cook as Sir Bedevere, the Strangely Flatulent, and Jana Kucera as The Lady of the Lake. EPAC’s “Spamalot” is directed by Patrick Foti, with Music Direction by Kris Gilbert. Choreography is by Emily Foti.
There are - if only briefly - references to "Monty Python's Flying Circus" skits, The Lumberjack Song, Spam, Dead Parrot Sketch, while some of Broadway's musicals are skewered along the way including a spoof of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, Man of La Mancha, Les Miserables, and The Producers. “Spamalot” pokes fun at almost everyone and everything. It is most appropriate for children 12 and older who can appreciate the unique ‘Pythonesque’ sense of humor that can appear cheeky, impertinent, irreverent, disrespectful, and sometimes just plain rude…but to the sophisticated and discerning eye, it is silliness raised to an art form and all good fun.
