Casting has been announced for The Media Theatre's upcoming production of the Tony-winning musical Monty Python's Spamalot, which will run Sept. 25-Nov. 3 at the Pennsylvania venue.



Aspects of Love's Ann Crumb, who has appeared in Media's productions of Master Class, Wings and Souvenir, will star as The Lady of the Lake. She will be joined by Dan Schiff as King Arthur, David Jack as Patsy, Patrick Ludt as Robin, Will Harrell as Lancelot, Tim Haney as Bedevere, Jay Poff as Galahad and Harrison Post as Prince Herbert.

The cast is completed by Rachel Beiswenger, Will Connell, Ashley Douglas, JP Dunphy, Sam Nagel, Will Pazdziora, Taylor Elise Rector, Megan Rucidlo, Billy Steeves and Melody Wilson.

Dann Dunn will direct and choreograph the production with musical direction by Tom Fosnocht.

"Ann is a legendary actress who delighted audiences in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love on Broadway and in London's West End," artistic director Jesse Cline said in a statement. "Her talent is extraordinary and she will bring a fresh life to The Lady of the Lake."

Eric Idol and John Du Prez's Monty Python's Spamalot is based on the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." It received the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical. Much like the classic film from the '70's, press notes state, "it follows a non-traditional and surreal strand of humor as King Arthur journeys to find the Holy Grail. The King recruits several eccentric and somewhat ridiculous Knights for his quest. Along the way they meet The Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, The Knights of Ni and a few other bizarre characters."
