MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT

MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT

Book and Lyrics by Eric Idle

Music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle

Directed by Lezlie Wade

Choreographed by Jesse Robb


TAKE A WALK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE


King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table are off to find the Holy Quail – no, sorry, Grail. Along the way, they encounter the nonsensical Knights of Ni, a fearsome rip-your-throat-out rabbit and a surprising number of showgirls. You’ll quest long and far before you find anything so sublimely silly, so irresistibly toe-tappingly tuneful, or so much fun.
