THE PITMEN PAINTERS, May 31 - July 7 / Studio Theater
- Written by Lee Hall
- Inspired by a book by William Feaver
- Directed by Sarah May
Presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Heralded in London’s West End and on Broadway, this new play by the Tony Award-winning writer of Billy Elliot is based on a triumphant true story. In 1934, a group of miners in Northern England take an art appreciation class and begin experimenting with painting. They soon build an astonishing body of work that makes them the unlikeliest of art-world sensations. An arresting and hilarious salute to the power of individual expression and the collective spirit, The Pitmen Painters is richly funny, deeply moving and continuously entertaining as it examines the lives of a group of ordinary men who do extraordinary things. A heart-breakingly funny, inspirational story that takes you on an unforgettable journey from the depths of the mine to the heights of fame.
MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT, July 12 - August 18 / Mackey Main Stage
- Written by Eric Idle
- Music and Lyrics by John Du Prez
- Directed by Scott Spence
- Musical Direction by Larry Goodpaster
- Choreographed by Martín Céspedes
Presented through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide
Monty Python's Spamalot is the outrageous musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the cult classic motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail. With music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez and book by Mr. Idle, Spamalot tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. Winner of three 2005 Tony Awards including Best Musical, this hysterically irreverent musical features a chorus line of dancing divas and knee-slapping knights, flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows, killer rabbits, a legless knight, and several show-stopping musical numbers including Always Look on the Bright Side of Life and The Song That Goes Like This.
