Monty Python's SPAMALOT


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 Palin

Direction & Choreography by Andrew Ceglio

Tap Choreography by Stephanie Bayer

Music Direction by Katie Coleman


Monty Python’s SPAMALOT, the musical comedy sensation lovingly ripped off from the film classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail, arrives this spring to spread laughter and cheer throughout the kingdom. As gleefully silly yet wickedly smart as Monty Python, the beloved British comedy troupe that inspired it, SPAMALOT tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. You’ll enjoy some mostly handsome Knights, a bevy of beautiful showgirls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people, before the familiar sound of clomping coconut shells brings down the curtain on the season’s goofiest, if satirically dead-on, comic delight. Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical!



"You could put a happy-meter in the theatre and watch it go off the charts. You’ll laugh a lot!"
