Foster will play the role of King Arthur, and Cody will play Arthur’s sidekick Patsy in the Eric Idle and John Du Prez musical. Although the married couple have shared the stage on several occasions — Grease, Les Misérables and Cats (where they first met) — this will be the first time they have appeared onstage together in Cody’s hometown of Rochester, NY.
They will be joined onstage by Brandon Andrus as Sir Galahad; Mike DiSalvo as Lancelot, the Knight of Ni and Tim the Enchanter; Jacob Hoffman as the Historian, Not Dead Fred and Prince Herbert; Ashley Dawn Mortensen as Lady of the Lake; Jim Poulos as Sir Robin; and Michael James Warrell as Sir Bedevere.
The ensemble features Jessica Azenberg, John Cummings, Nicole Evas, Andy Frank, Leah Hassett, Shannon Mullen, Adam Pellegrine, Frankie Paparone and Jacob Stewart.
Melissa Rain Anderson will direct.
"Lovingly ripped off from the classic comedy film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail,' this outrageous musical parody," according to press notes, "tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Embarking on their quest to find the Holy Grail, the Knights’ shenanigans include flying cows, beautiful show girls, killer rabbits, and flatulent Frenchmen – all while performing heart-stopping and hilarious musical numbers."
