RISING STAR PROJECT:  Monty Python's Spamalot

March 14-15, 2014

In February 2014, The 5th Avenue Theatre will present the much-loved musical Monty Python’s Spamalot. In March, following the professional production, local students (ages 14-19) will work together to mount an all-student production of Spamalot on the 5th Avenue stage using the same staging, props, set and costumes as the professional production.

Proudly supported by The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation, the Rising Star Project production will be entirely student-performed and will be run by a student technical crew under the mentorship and guidance of theater professionals.  The production will be coordinated, marketed, developed and produced by a student administrative team under the coaching of 5th Avenue Theatre staff.
