The Ogunquit Playhouse's production of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Monty Python's Spamalot opened Aug. 18 and plays through Sept. 11 at the Maine venue.
The cast is headed by Charles Shaughnessy ("The Nanny," "Days of Our Lives"; Orson's Shadow at Pasadena Playhouse) as King Arthur and Rachel York (Broadway's City of Angels, Les Misérables, Victor/Victoria, Sly Fox, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as the Lady of the Lake. Scott Taylor directs and choreographs.
The company also includes Richard Costa as Sir Bedevere, Matthew Greer as Sir Lancelot and Jeffrey Denman as Sir Robin.
Spamalot features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle, music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle, and is based on the screenplay of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.
The musical tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their quest from God for the Holy Grail — with a short stop in the dazzling Spam-filled land of Camelot.
