"火腿骑士" Is Opening Act in Nichols Center for 剧院 and 跳舞

To the riotous laughter and appreciative applause of full-house audiences, more than 50 student actors, 音乐家, and tech crew members produced the musical 火腿骑士 4月 6–9 in the newly renovated Norris Ely Orchard 剧院 (NEO). 

Presented by the ysb88查菲堡 Performing 艺术 Department, the show was the first production in the newly opened John D. 和亚历山德拉C. Nichols Center for 剧院 and 跳舞, which includes the renewed and enhanced NEO.  

“The new space is great to work in and is also beautiful for audience members,” said senior Jasper Gitlitz, st年龄 man年龄r of the production. “The entire cast and crew worked tirelessly to put on this show, and I am so proud of all of them.”  

Inspired by the classic comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 火腿骑士 made its Broadway debut in 2005. The Grammy and Tony award-winning musical was written by Eric Idle, an original member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, with musician John Du Prez.  

Embellished with singing, 跳舞, and killer rabbits, 的无礼, slapstick parody of the Arthurian legend tells the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable on a quest to find the Holy Grail, a journey that crosses paths with the Lady of the Lake, 蒂姆的魔法师, 弗雷德没有死, the Knights Who Say “Ni,” and other outlandish characters. The cast included senior Ben Radmore as King Arthur; senior Aidan Cooper as Sir Lancelot; senior Vanessa Magid as the Lady of the Lake; senior Grace Thompson as Patty, King Arthur’s servant; senior Kate Shymkiv as Sir Bedevere; junior Jade Silverstein as Sir Robin; and sophomore Brigham Cooper as Sir Galahad.
