Adirondack Theatre Festival: The Enlightenment of Percival von Schmootz
July 5 - 13
Music by Michael Kooman
Book & Lyrics by Chris Dimond
Directed by Scott Weinstein
Fed up with a world filled with plagues, pestilence, and poor personal hygiene, a ridiculously optimistic young man sets out on a quest to end the Dark Ages. As he attempts to bring the light of hope to the world, Percival von Schmootz meets with hilariously disastrous results at every turn. Yet in this outrageous, Monty Python-esque musical comedy, it is only when things look the darkest that Percival is able to discover what true enlightenment means, as he finds hope (and humor) in impossibly bleak circumstances.
