August 31, 2016 - October 02, 2016

Book & lyrics by Eric Idle  |  Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle   |  A new musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”  |  From the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Pain  |  Directed by Melissa Rain Anderson


From the deliciously twisted minds of Monty Python’s Flying Circus comes the irreverent, sidesplitting Broadway smash musical that proves that you should always look on the bright side of life, especially if you’re not yet dead. 

Witches, wizards, killer bunny rabbits with big pointy teeth and the French (naturally!) are just a few of the epic obstacles that Arthur and his brave knights (and Sir Robin) must vanquish on their eternal quest to find the Holy Grail; and create a hit stage show in the process.

Blending the most quotable parts of the cult comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail with a lovingly savage satire of the entertainment industry, Spamalot will have you rolling in the aisles and buying shrubberies in the gift shop on your way out of the theatre.

“I'm always compelled and inspired to work on great comedy,” said Director Melissa Rain Anderson. “I think the tag line says it best: ‘Lovingly ripped from the motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail.’ The Pythons are famous for their silly, quirky comedy and I'm a big fan of their style. Though the humor is irreverent, the tone is still very buoyant. There's a sweet spot with delivering that type of humor. The key is committing to that zone and playing within that very specific zany realm.

“And it’s all on the page,” Anderson continues. “There’s no need to comment or call attention to the jokes. It's a wonderful tight rope to walk, and I am committed to maintaining that honesty. It's a joyous event of a show, and I'm thrilled to be working on Spamalot, again!”

One of the wackiest musicals to ever win three Tony Awards, including “Best Musical,” Spamalot will delight even the most jaded theatregoer!
