AUBURN — Lewiston-Auburn Community Little Theatre has a blockbuster musical “Spamalot” running Aug. 9 through 18, at Great Falls Performing Arts Center, 30 Academy St.  Music director Paul G. Caron and co-directors Richard Martin and John Blanchette have been heavily involved the past few weeks in rehearsals. Working with them are Vincent Ratsavong and Rebecca Caron co-choreographers, and Leah Fournier dance captain.  Katie St. Pierre is producer.

“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 Frenchman and killer rabbits. Outside there is a plague with a 50 percent chance of pestilence and famine. Throughout the show Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest. 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. The show has a huge cast and crew, promising a spectacular set, beautiful costumes and lots of singing and dancing. 

John B. Nutting has the lead role of King Arthur.  The cast includes the following: Sean Wallace as Sir Lancelot; Dan Kane as Knight of Ni; John Daggett as Sir Robin; David Handley as Patsy, King Arthur’s servant;  Dan Crawford as Sir Bedevere; Derrick Lacasse as Sir Galahad; and Michael Litchfield in multiple roles
