K. Leigh Campbell intrigues audiences as the Lady of the Lake in the Beaufort Theatre Company production of “Spamalot” at USCB Center for the Arts. SUSAN DELOACH

USCB Center for the Arts opens its 2019-20 season with the hilarious musical “Spamalot,” opening Sept. 21, presented by Beaufort Theatre Company.

Hilarious and often irreverent, “Spamalot” promises to be a crowd pleaser. Based on and “lovingly ripped off from” the cult classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the show offers classic jokes from Rude Frenchmen to Killer rabbits, as well as new additions such as the Lady of the Lake, complete with her squad of Laker Girls.

Audiences will love the quirky musical parody of King Arthur and his infamous quest that captivated Broadway, winning the Tony for Best New Musical in 2005.

Josh Wall is back as musical director with Christopher Crabb as choreographer. The two most recently collaborated on both “Nunsense” and last year’s “Mamma Mia!”

Libby Ricardo joins forces with her husband and fellow USCB theater professor, George Pate, to direct. “We’re elated to be working with such a talented group of individuals who are so dedicated to bringing Beaufort quality entertainment,” Ricardo said.

“Spamalot” features long-time Beaufort favorites along with some new talent. Leading the quest as King Arthur is newcomer Wes Campbell, accompanied by his loyal sidekick, Patsy, played by Greg Rawls, yet again pulling double duty onstage and designing sets.

Rounding out the motley crew of knights are Jennifer Ford as the dashingly handsome Sir Galahad, Noah Krepps as the homicidally brave Sir Lancelot, Dakota Wright as the not-so-brave Sir Robin, Carl Linke as Sir Bedevere, and the fabulous K. Leigh Campbell as the Lady of the Lake.

Performances are Sept. 21, 27, 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 22 and 29 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 adult, $20 senior and military, and $15 students.

Other 2019-20 shows on the schedule include: Masters of Soul, Oct. 11; Second City: Greatest Hits (Vol. 59), Nov. 15; Mike Super: Magic and Illusion, Jan. 17; The Piano Men: with Jim Witter, Feb. 1; “The Room: Songs and Stories of Free Women,” performed by Natalie and Sara Daise, March 20; and The Modern Gentlemen, April 25.

Beaufort Children’s Theatre productions will be “Mary Poppins, Jr.” Nov. 22-24, and “Seussical, the Musical, Jr.” May 15-17.

The 2019-2020 season will end with Beaufort Theatre Company production “All Shook Up” June 6-14.
