The Delaware All-State Theatre’s production of Spamalot offers hysterical, funny and relentless entertainment from an über talented cast of 45 of the best young performers from around Delaware. The musical — replete with fantastic sets, a 12-piece orchestra, and of course a flying cow — opened last weekend at the Laird Performing Arts Center at the Tatnall School and runs through this weekend. Spamalot is a spoof on the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The cast and ensemble are remarkable, with bold vocals, tap-dancing knights, and comic acting delivered with British accents. This is the 30th musical performance for cast member Will Rotsch (Salesianum ’17) who plays Patsy, and crowd pleaser Julian Andrew Manjerico (Elkton High School ’15) puts his own personal stamp on three roles for this production — Sir Robin, Guard 1 and Maynard. Spamalot is his 30th musical performance.
This is the eighth season for the Delaware All-State Theatre, which was founded by two members of the Sanford School‘s performing arts department — Jeffrey Santoro and Lisa Nowicki. Sanford Performing Arts Department chair Clint Williams is the musical director of Spamalot.
