The Geauga Lyric Theater is closing its season with the zany Monty Python’s Spamalot. Based on the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this hilariously irreverent comedy has gained a large following over the years. Director Mark Cipra (The Music Man, Romeo & Juliet, Midsummer Night’s Dream), loves working at GLTG and loves crazy comedies. “It allows me to exercise my brain, and is a rewarding collaboration working with the actors and the rest of the staff, fleshing out the comedy…stealing their ideas!”
Hannah Maxwell, last seen on stage at GLTG in Mary Poppins, plays Patsy, King Arthur’s sidekick. “Patsy is a very demanding role. I fall down a lot. Or get sat on. Or crushed by flying cows. All while lugging 200 pounds of props on my back, while dancing and singing. It’s a challenge, but an absolute blast.”
This energetic show will run from April 15 through Mother’s Day May 8. There will be no shows during Maple Festival Weekend, April 22-24, so be sure to enjoy the festival, and to park in the Geauga Lyric Art Center’s lot at 106 Water St. The GLTG and CCAT get to split the proceeds for their organizations.
Tickets for Spamalot are $18, $15 and $10, and are available online here, or at the box office 440-286-2255. Special thanks to our Marquee Sponsor Bill Conti Plumbing! The historic Geauga Theater is located on beautiful Chardon Square at 101 Water Street, Chardon, Ohio.
