“Arthur [in CAMELOT] is a man with strong hopes and plans that blow up in his face. SPAMALOT has a much happier ending because Arthur learns that life is too important to be taken seriously. Just whistle -that’s the thing. In CAMELOT Arthur doesn’t quite get there.” Award-winning actor Charles Shaughnessy is talking about his experience playing Arthur, King of the Britains, in two different musicals. Shaughnessy is poised to reprise his role as the monarch in the Ogunquit Playhouse’s SPAMALOT, which opens at the theatre’s new Leary Pavilion on June 16 and runs through July 10, 2021. He first appeared there in the Monty Python musical comedy in 2011 and also played Arthur in Lerner and Loewe’s CAMELOT at North Shore Music Theatre in 2005.
