A chorus line of kicking knights, beautiful show girls, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight will kick off Lakewood Theatre Company’s 61st season for the Portland area premiere “Monty Python’s Spamalot” Sept. 6 through Oct. 13.

This Tony Award-winning musical comedy, ripped off from the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” raises silliness to an art form. Stage direction for Lakewood’s production is by Alan Shearman, musical direction is by Stephen Alexander and choreography is by Erin Shannon.

The story follows the misadventures of the legendary King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in medieval England, as he follows his quest for the Holy Grail, meeting a killer rabbit, feisty Frenchmen and some beautiful women along the way.

Jay Pevney stars as King Arthur, Stephanie Heuston takes on the role of the Lady of the Lake. Burl Ross plays Sir Lancelot and Norman Wilson is the Brave Sir Robin. Featured in the cast are Ben Farmer as Sir Galahad, Joseph J. Klei as Prince Herbert, Kevin-Michael Moore as Sir Bedever and John Killeen as Patsy.

The large cast also features Portland musical performers Erin Shannon, Ryan Andrews, Joey Cote, Max DuBowy, Kylie Clarke Johnson, Bryan Kinder, Rafe Larsen, Signe Larsen, Bailey Olmstad, Lindsay Nicole Schramm, Maria Tucker and Jared Warby.

Performances are set for Thursday through Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 7 p.m.; and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Sept. 15, 29 and Oct. 6 and 13. Tickets are $36 for adults, $34 for seniors and students. Order tickets online at lakewood-center.org or call the box office at 503-635-3901.

There is one Wednesday performance at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 at which the new program, Wine on Wednesday (WOW): 25 to 35, will be introduced. At that performance people age 35 and younger will be admitted for $25 each. One hour prior to the performance there will be a complimentary wine tasting hosted by World Class Wines.
