Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF is pleased to present Monty Python’s Spamalot from September 9 – October 11, 2015 in the Margeson Theater. Directed by Artistic Director Jim Helsinger with musical direction by Steve MacKinnon and choreography by Billy Sprague, Jr., the production will headline the Theater’s upcoming 27th Season Signature Series. Tickets to Monty Python’s SPAMALOT are available now by calling (407) 447-1700 ext. 1, visiting www.orlandoshakes.org, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 East Rollins Street).

Based on the classic film Monty Python and The Holy Grail, this saucy musical parody tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. On a quest for the Holy Grail, the Knights encounter flying cows, killer rabbits, and taunting Frenchmen while performing heart-stopping musical numbers. Winner of three Tony Awards including “Best Musical”, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT takes silliness to a whole new level.

“Following the incredible success of last season’s Les Misérables, we’re excited to present our audiences with something completely different this year,” said SPAMALOT Director Jim Helsinger. “Davis Gaines and Michael Hunsaker will reunite on our stage for this hilarious musical, joined by a cast of Broadway sensations and local stars. Be prepared to laugh and sing along on this wild adventure!”
