Monty Python’s Spamalot is a zany musical that blends the wackiness of the English comedy team with Arthurian legend and Broadway glitz. “Lovingly ripped off” from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in a whole new way. Featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls – not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people – this irreverent spoof includes hilarious parodies of Broadway theatre along the way. The winner of three 2005 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot “raises silliness to an art form” (The Sunday Times) and has been hailed as “a no-holds-barred smash hit.” (The New Yorker)

Note: Monty Python’s Spamalot is a bit bawdy and contains some adult humor and language. (Violence is restricted to fish slapping and a sword fight that shortens an obstinate knight’s height rather significantly.)

Monty Python’s Spamalot will be directed by Gene Johnson, with music direction by Steve Bradford and choreography by Carol Johnson. Bland Wade will design the set, with lighting by Dean Wilcox. Justin Hall will design the costumes. Doug Wenner will design sound. Alexander Rothschild will serve as props master. Danny Alvarez will stage manage the production, assisted by Kevin Davie and Kirby Carespodi.
