Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

James and the Giant Peach Jr.
Friday, December 4th thru Sunday, December 6th
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.

Morgantown Theatre Company (MTC) was established as a non-profit organization in 1998 by Hillary Phillips, already the successful director of numerous children's theatre performances.
MTC provides school age children with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of theatre arts activities. Each semester, every MTC student "gets a part" with direct on-stage experience. Besides acting, singing and dancing, MTC students develop behind the scenes skills in set and prop design, lighting, sound effects, makeup, stage management, and even directing. These activities help build self-confidence, teamwork, responsibility, problem solving, communication, and leadership skills.
MTC students undertake intensive preparation for plays and musicals, which requires great dedication and diligence - but throughout the process they have fun and develop lasting friendships with children throughout the area. Approximately 4-6 productions are performed for the general public each year on the Metropolitan Theatre stage after MTC moved to the lower, mid-level of the Metropolitan Theatre in April, 2005. The first production on this new stage was Beauty and the Beast in February, 2006.
