RFH Tower Players Spring into Musical Production with ‘Spamalot’

RFH Tower Players rehearse for Spamalot

The Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Tower Players are looking on “the bright side of life” with a two-weekend production of its spring musical Spamalot.

Spamalot, a staged musical comedy spin on the cult classic movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, features a familiar libretto of tunes like Always Look on The Bright Side of Life and Knights of The Round Table. The Tower Players production will run March 24, 25 and 26 and March 31 and April 1.

The show tells the story of King Arthur, played by RFH’s Jackson Champeau in this production, on his quest to find the Holy Grail. Along the way, he enlists an army of knights including the strangely flatulent Sir Bedevere (Roshan Sell), the dashingly handsome Sir Galahad (Christian Stone), the homicidally brave Sir Lancelot (Evan Callas), and the not-quite-so-brave, Sir Robin (Chris Stypa).

Together, with King Authur’s faithful servant Patsy (Hailey Blum), this gang of goofballs speak to God, battle french taunters, and are even halted by a killer bunny. With the help of the boisterous Lady of the Lake (Lainie Lombardo), these knights take a comical journey in their quest for the Grail.

Behind the scenes, the Tower Players’ production of Spamalot is directed by KasiAnn Sweeney, with Matthew Leddin serving as technical director, Donna Battaglia as choreographer, Amanda Gorfain as musical director and Catherine Cleary as costume designer and props director.

New to the RFH Tower Players musical production crew are: Anthony Pruester, assistant director; and, Sue Wankel, play production coordinator.

Spamalot is presented through a special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide. For tickets, please click here for the online box office.
