It’s Opening Weekend for Spamalot!


Originally posted on Rome Little Theatre:

Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. However, diverting a bit from the true story, this hilarious musical features such oddities as a line of beautiful dancing girls, a flatulent Frenchmen and killer rabbits. Outside there is plague with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine. Throughout the show Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad. Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni.

PG-13, Parents strongly cautioned: Spamalot is peppered with salty language and gestures, comedic violence, and situations that some might consider offensive. It’s not recommended for children under 13, or for those who are easily offended.

Beyond the RLT – March 2015


Beyond the RLT Logo

By Wendell Barnes

So after you’ve crammed as much spam (or ham!) into your system after viewings of all six performances of “Spamalot” at RLT, you’ll obviously be searching for a second or third course elsewhere, preferably something that can ease your sore stomach muscles from all of the laughter!  There’s lots of theatre going on all around us, so come with me on a journey to some other theatres Beyond the RLT!

WARNING:  MANY OF THESE SHOWS ARE ENDING ON MARCH 8TH SO HURRY IF YOU WANT TO CATCH THEM THIS WEEKEND!

Now Showing: The Outsiders!


The Outsiders Poster2 (1)

The Outsiders stage adaptation deals with real people, seen through the eyes of young Ponyboy, a Greaser on the wrong side of life, caught up in territorial battles between the have-it-made rich kids the “Socs” and his tough, underprivileged “greaser” family and friends.

S.E. Hinton, who wrote this modern classic when she was 16 years old, comments: “The Outsiders, like most things I write, is written from a boy’s point of view. That’s why I’m listed as S.E. Hinton rather than Susan. (I figured most boys would look at the book and think ‘What can a chick know about stuff like that!’) None of the events are taken from life, but the rest—how kids think and live and feel—is for real. The characters—Dallas, who wasn’t tough enough; Sodapop, the happy-go-lucky dropout; Bob, the rich kid whose arrogance cost him his life; Ponyboy, the sensitive, green-eyed Greaser who didn’t want to be a hood—they’re all real to me. Many of my friends are Greasers, but I’m not. I have friends who are rich, too, but nobody will ever call me a Soc—I’ve seen what money and too much idle time and parental approval can do to people. Cool people mean nothing to me—they’re living behind masks and I’m always wondering “Is there a real person underneath?” Continue reading

To those of you who were not cast, we have some special assignments in mind for several of you.  Please check your email over the next few weeks.

Seriously though, you folks made this a tough one.  We were climbing the ivy, we were so frustrated.

ONLINE AUDITION REGISTRATION FORM

In the bleachers at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, die hard Cub fans root for their team. The group includes a rabid cheerleader, a blind man who follows the game by transistor radio and does his own play by play, a bathing beauty, a nerd and various other bleacher denizens. As the game proceeds, they bet among themselves on every conceivable event, go out for frosty malts or beers, try to pick up the bathing beauty and, occasionally, watch the game. The Cubs inevitably blow it in the ninth and the villainous Marvin, who always bets against the Cubs figuring he can’t lose, cleans up. The bleacher bums remain undaunted they will be back tomorrow to root for the home team.

Note about accents:  It is not necessary to be able to speak with a Chicago accent.
CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS: Continue reading
