From RTC’s Artistic Director

The Resident Theatre Company is bringing New York Theatre to West Chester!

 The Resident Theatre Company is bringing one of the funniest comedies of all time in the new Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center. Based on the 1975 film Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot racked up 14 TONY nominations including Best Musical.

RTC’s Artistic Director, Kristin McLaughlin Mitchell, has put together a cast of actors that is a who’s who of New York and Philadelphia theatre professionals. Critically acclaimed choreographer Derek Roland joins the team to produce a show that is sure to have the audience jumping out of their seats. And the amazing Amanda Mortn comes to RTC directly from The Arden Theatre to music direct.

Mitchell chose Spamalot as RTC’s premiere production because “It is a show that connects to more than just your typical theatre crowd. Spamalot is so funny and accessible to so many people. Whether you’re a regular theatre attendee or a first timer, whether you’ve seen the movie or you haven’t, none of that matters. The only thing you need is a willingness to laugh and have a good time, and you’re bound to love the show.”

Come to West Chester and join King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, clunking coconuts, Knights who say “Ni”, and more as you traverse through the English countryside on a quest for the Holy Grail. In your path, are bizarre questions about swallows, killer rabbits and hilarious situations that could only come from the geniuses of Monty Python.

New York theatre veteran Mark Woodward will lead the cast in the role of King Arthur, and while he admits it is good to be king, Mark adds “I’ve been looking forward to this for months, like a kid waiting for Christmas. it’s gonna be So! Much! Fun!”.

Spamalot runs from March 31st through April 16th. Tickets can be purchased online at: http://www.rtcwc.org/spamalot.html
