Manatee Players add "Spamalot" to 2014-15 season

   Manatee Players announced Friday that they’ll end their 2014-15 season with the award-winning musical “Spamalot.” It’s scheduled to run April 30-May 17, 2015, at Stone Hall in the Manatee Performing Arts Center.
    The company announced its season Tuesday, but it had to withhold news of “Spamalot” because Florida Studio Theatre currently has a production of the show on its stage in Sarasota.

“We weren’t allowed to announce in until the 17th,” Manatee Players producing artistic director Rick Kerby said.    
   “Spamalot” is mostly based on the hit film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” but mixes in other Monty Python songs and references, plus some new material. It was co-written by Python’s Eric Idle.
