RiverStage Community Theatre to transport audiences back to 12th century England with ‘Monty Python’s Spamalot’

LEWISBURG — For the final show of its season, RiverStage Community Theatre transports theatergoers back to merry olde England with “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”

The zany musical comedy has five shows over two weekends, with 7:30 p.m. performances on June 17 and 18, June 24 and 25, and with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on June 26.

Performances are at the Greenspace Center, 815 Market St., Lewisburg.

Depending on COVID-19 precautions at the time, seating may be limited, and audience masking may be required.

With music and lyrics by Eric Idle and John DuPrez, RiverStage’s version is directed by Jove Graham, with the over-the-music direction by Dianne Scott. Choreography is provided by Amy Casimir.

Graham, RiverStage president, notes that “this is our third attempt at doing this show after two COVID 19 cancellations, and so, the third time is the charm.”

“Monty Python’s Spamalot” spoofs other musical comedies and advertises itself as “lovingly ripped” from the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

The story, loaded with absurd humor, follows King Arthur, his loyal servant Patsy and his band of knights as they search 12th century England for the celebrated Holy Grail.

This production features a live orchestra of 12 musicians and a cast of 27 actors of all ages, and from all across the Susquehanna Valley.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.riverstagetheatre.org/. Tickets purchased online will be held at “will call” unless otherwise ordered.

All seating is general admission. Doors will open approximately 30 minutes before each performance.
