The Glove Performing Arts Center presents the summer production of Monty Python’s Spamalot July 21-30 at 8 PM July 31 at 2PM. Spamalot is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail directed by Andrew Higgs. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways. General Admission $15. Students& Seniors $12.The story line is that King Arthur traveling around England recruiting his Knights of the Round Table. When he and his band of misfit knights finally gather in Camelot, they receive a charge from God to find the Holy Grail. The quest brings King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to strange places and into the company of strange characters, challenging them to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths. This 2005 Tony Award¬ winner for Best Musical is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
