Monty Python’s ‘Spamalot’ Set to Run Three Weekends at Surfside Playhouse in Cocoa Beach
By Space Coast Daily // October 29, 2017
Opens Nov. 3 under the direction of Bryan Bergeron
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA — King Arthur, knights in shining armor and — killer rabbits?
Yes, it’s Spamalot, opening Friday, November 3 at the Surfside Playhouse in Cocoa Beach, running through November 19 (three weekends), under the direction of Bryan Bergeron.
The musical Spamalot is a stage adaptation of the enormously successful film comedy, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
And like the film, Spamalot parodies the legend of King Arthur and his quest, with the addition of further zany characters and situations.
The original 2005 Broadway production of Spamalot won three Tony Awards, including the Tony® Award for Best Musical, and received 14 Tony Award nominations.
Filled with gags that will leave you gasping for breath, Spamalot features the talents of Rob Dickman as King Arthur, Joel Shugars as Sir Lancelot, with the Lady of the Lake played by Malinda Villain and Sir Robin played by Jonathan Andrews.
A total cast of 22 players will grace the stage.
Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., Sunday shows are at 2 p.m. Adult tickets to all shows are $25, Senior/Military/Student tickets are $22.

The 250-seat Surfside Playhouse, “where the beach meets the stage,” is west on South Fifth Street from Highway A1A and located at 301 Ramp Road, at the northwest corner of Brevard Avenue and Ramp Road.

Artistic Director for the Surfside Players, Bryan Bergeron believes Spamalot is just what storm-torn Brevard needs right now.
“It’s time for us all to start laughing again and Spamalot is just the play to do it,” said Bergeron “Everyone remembers their favorite characters from the film version. Well, this is just as kooky, with an uber talented cast that plays every gag for belly laughs.”
