Paradise pulls a coup by grabbing ‘Spamalot’ for next summer

Gig Harbor’s Paradise Theatre, which annually pulls off an ambitious seven-show season in addition to its regimen of acting and dance classes and youth productions, announced a 2012-13 season that includes the first Kitsap-area production of Monty Python’s “Spamalot.”

The zany musical comedy, based on the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” is slated for the theater’s early-summer slot, opening June 21, 2013 and running through July 7.

Other shows set for productions at Fishermen’s Hall next season include: “9 to 5: The Musical” (Sept. 21 to Oct. 7); “Oliver!” (Nov. 23 to Dec. 9); “Of Mice and Men” (Jan. 18 to Feb. 2, 2013); “Cabaret” (March 8 to 24); “Steel Magnolias” (April 19 to May 5); and “Forever Plaid” (Aug. 2 to 18).

Of course, Paradise is still busy with its 2011-12 season, performing “Anything Goes” through July 1, and finishing up with “Annie Get Your Gun” Apg. 3 to 19.

Paradise will conduct general auditions for its 2012-13 shows by appointment on July 14, and asks that auditioners prepare a 1-minute monologue and 1 minute of a Broadway-style song. Appointments can be requested by e-mailing Vicki Richards at vrichards@paradisetheatre.org.

Information about all of Paradise’s shows and programs is available at 253-851-7529 or paradisetheatre.org
