The Orlando Shakespeare Theater will host their 27th Season Gala at John & Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center on Sunday, September 20, 2015.
For theater lovers, the highlight of the night will be a one-night-only performance by Davis Gaines (LA’s longest-running Phantom from The Phantom of the Opera); Dee Roscioli (record-holder for most appearances as Elphaba in Wicked); and Michael Hunsaker (Jean Valjean in Orlando Shakes’ Les Misérables). The trio also star in the Orlando Shakes version of Monty Python’s SPAMALOT, which start September 9.
The Orlando Shakespeare Theater is opening their 27th season in grand style with Monty Python’s SPAMALOT from September 9 to October 11.
Based on the classic film Monty Python and The Holy Grail, this saucy musical parody tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table from a Python point of view.
The Orlando Shakespeare Theater will be opening their 2015-2016 season with a rousing version of Monty Python’s SPAMALOT, and to help promote the production, they’re asking all of Central Florida to join in a massive sing-a-long.
Last year, Orlando Shakes staged a flash mob to promote their production of Les Miserables that has received over 1 million views. They want to go even bigger this year.
On November 1, Downtown Orlando will come to life with performances and interactive art installations spread across the public spaces of our city center during Creative City Project 2014.
