'Spamalot' costumes send NJ high schools to court

'Spamalot' costumes send NJ high schools to court
BY RACHEL STRAUSS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The perception that drama is always in the theatre may prove to be true. Main State Music Theatre, a nonprofit company established nearly 40 years ago, filed a lawsuit against a local New Jersey high school and neighboring theatre company.

Edison High School, Nicholas Kaminski of Edison, N.J., and the Algonquin Arts Theatre of Manasquan, N.J. were sued for damaging, losing and wrongly giving away costume pieces from “Monty Python’s Spamalot” without permission. The total damage amounts to nearly $212,000.

Main State Music Theatre routinely lends out props and costumes for other theatre companies to temporarily borrow. MSMT rented a full set of costumes from Monty Python to Edison High School for $5,000 less than the usual asking price of $15,000. Kaminski was the coordinator of the rental, and according to the complaint issued by Main State Music Theatre, Kaminski gave the borrowed Spamalot costumes to the Algonquin Arts Theatre company without MSMT’s consent.

The filed lawsuit was sent in February to Cumberland County Superior Court, however, the case was just recently moved to U.S. District Court because the Algonquin Theatre is located outside of Maine.
