In the Knight Time

It's going to be an interesting evening at the State Museum. Tonight is the 9th annual Fairy Tale Trial, a benefit for Literacy Volunteers Mohawk/Hudson, touted as a night of "theatrical fun and fundraising with local celebrities." This year's production takes you to the court of King Arthur for The Sword and the Stoned; here's a partial list of the cast:
The Lady of Lark Street: Fred LeBrun - The Times-Union
Guinevere: Mary Darcy - WAMC
Nights of the Roundtable: Joe Donohue and Susan Arbetter - WAMC
Sir Launcelot: John Gray - FOX 23
King Arthur: Jeff Wilkin - Daily Gazette
We'd earlier heard that DA David Soares would play the prosecutor---and that John Gray's character was originally named Sir Prancelot but not anymore. Tickets to the show, which was penned by OiNk ringleader Michael Carrese, are $35; Cocktails & Hors d'oevres at 6; Heads up on the cash bar, but there's a (presumably free) beer tasting sponsored by Brewery Ommegang! Drink enough of that and even Fred LeBrun will look good in a skirt.
