Green River students to appear in “Spamalot” production
Four Kentlake High School students who are participating in Green River's Running Start program will be appearing in the upcoming production of Monty Python's Spamalot.
Opening Dec. 5 at Kentlake's Performing Arts Center, Taylor Harris, Amanda Fraser, Julia Payment and Taylor Ryberg will take the stage in typical Monty Python fashion to poke fun at everyone and everything sacred with flying cows, killer rabbits and taunting Frenchmen.
Payment, who has also appeared in many Heavier Than Air Family Theatre productions, admits it can be tough to juggle classes and then head back to Kentlake for long hours of rehearsals. "Tech week (for the play) came at the same time I had some big projects due, but I do it because I love it," she says.
"Spamalot" opens Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m., and runs Dec. 5-8 and Dec. 12-15 at Kentlake High School's Performing Arts Center, 21401 SE Falcon Way, Kent, WA. Additional Saturday matinees run Dec. 8 and 15 at 2 p.m. All tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at brownpapertickets.com or at the door one hour before show time.
Due to some "nudge-nudge, wink-wink" material, the show is recommended for audiences of older children (8 and up) and for all fun-loving adults.
All proceeds from Opening Night will go to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. For more information, go to www.kentlakedrama.com.
