Special to 1812Blockhouse from Renaissance Performing Arts Association
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people.
The Renaissance Theatre is hosting a two-weekend run of the musical comedy, Monty Python’s Spamalot, with gut-busting performances Sunday afternoon at 2:30 PM, as well as on March 12 at 8:00 PM, and the closing performance March 13 at 2:30 PM.
Although Spamalot takes most of its cues from the cult classic film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it also includes additional material from “Flying Circus” and the other Monty Python films, which adds a wide array of comedy that’s enjoyable for cast members and audiences alike.More…
