Charlie Ferrie plays King Arthur. There are five things everyone needs to know about King Arthur. He's looking for knights, he's looking for the Grail, he's not great at counting.
Charlie has performed in numerous OpenStage Theatre productions, most recently as Charlie Aiken in August: Osage County, Treville in The Three Musketeers, Arthur in Superior Donuts, Judge Escalus in Romeo and Juliet, Richard Harkin in The Seafarer, Kent in King Lear and the title role in A Picasso. He has garnered two OpenStage OPUS Awards for his roles as Almady in The Play's the Thing and Prospero in The Tempest. Although Charlie doesn't consider himself to be the leading man type, he is proud of having been cast as Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew and as Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing. He also has appeared in The Woman in Black, Someone to Watch Over Me and other plays with Bas Bleu Theatre; Splitting Infinity with The Dance Connection; and several productions with Colorado State University, Foothills Civic Theatre, Front Range Chamber Players, Fort Collins Children's Theatre, CSU Summer Cafe Theatre and OpenStage Opera. Charlie is the recipient of the prestigious OpenStage Founders' Award for his outstanding contributions to the Company.
Monty Python's Spamalot
Book and Lyrics by Eric Idle, Music by John Du Prez, Directed by Emelie Borello
“. . . a resplendently silly new musical.” – The New York Times
As gleefully silly yet wickedly smart as the beloved film Monty Python and the Holy Grail – ‘Spamalot’ is an irreverent parody of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. It’s a joyous romp of a musical, filled with wild characters and wilder shenanigans. From killer rabbits to farting Frenchmen, the Lady of the Lake, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, and the Knights who say Ni, ‘Spamalot’ will make you want to take your coconuts in hand and join this wacky quest! 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical. 2006 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. Contains adult language and themes.
October 28 - November 25
