Albemarle High School (AHS) Players, directed by Fay E. Cunningham, present Monty Python’s Spamalot April 26-29, 2018 in Albemarle High School’s auditorium in Charlottesville, Virginia. Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, killer rabbits, neurotic knights, and outrageous fun.
Spamalot features sophomore Joseph Lorber as the clueless King Arthur and senior Liz Catchings as the ultimate diva, The Lady of the Lake. Lorber made his musical debut in the 2017 AHS Players’ production of Mary Poppins as Mr. Banks. Catchings is an alumna of The Governor’s School of Visual and Performing Arts, and has appeared in sixteen AHS productions including Little Women and Mary Poppins.
