NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Villages Musical Theater Board proudly announces our Spring 2023 musical:

              Spamalot

                             directed by Tim Casey.
         

 Monty Python's Spamalot is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the motion picture, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend, but it differs from the film in many ways. The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, received 14 Tony Awards nominations, winning in three categories, including Best Musical. During its initial run of 1,575 performances, it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million.

    
     We will obtain our assigned dates from the Entertainment Department for 2023 later this year and formally obtain the performance rights for this musical using those specific dates, but we anticipate no issue with this.
 
II.
 
Disney's Beauty and the Beast, directed by Sue Schuler,  is moving ahead through rehearsals which began in September, and looks to be shaping up to be a tremendous musical to be performed on April 5,6,7  of 2022. Further details on this show including cast may be found at the tab at the left for Beauty and the Beast. T
   Sue and her production team including Assistant Director Frank Olive have lined up costume rentals and purchases that will make this production totally "Disney" authentic and thrill our audiences, as will the number of elaborately choreographed large production numbers such as "Be Our Guest"
    Further details on ticket purchases will be forthcoming in early January.
 
III. ANNUAL MEETING AND ELECTIONS
      Our Annual meeting for 2022 will be held at Paradise Recreation Center on Thursday December 2 at 6:30 pm.  Please put that date on your calendar.
      All four Board members who are up for election, Bruce Greenberger, Janey Maloney, Gary Chubeck, and myself have indicated at this time that they will run for re-election for new two year terms, but I encourage anyone who would like to run for one of these four seats as well to submit their name to me by November 20.
