Arthurian legend has been an influential part of literature throughout the years. It has inspired books, TV shows, movies, and even plays. A popular version of such legend, is the movie entitled Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This particular adaptation has been adapted one step further into a musical play entitled Spamalot.
After speaking with Sean Tormey (senior), who will be playing King Arthur in the Saturday night showing of the show, he described the show as “King Arthur’s journey across England in search of knights for his army to help him find the Holy Grail.”
He went on to paint a wonderful picture of the the crazy adventure the characters and audience will journey through together during the length of the play. The “killer rabbit, the horrible knights of Ni, and some stubborn French taunters” all have their part as Arthur breaks through the fourth wall and his knights are forced to put on a Broadway show in order to complete their task of obtaining the Holy Grail.
Anyone who is a fan of the Monty Python films, or parodies in general, should most certainly stop by the show and enjoy the talent our drama department has to offer. Audience members should be prepared for singing and adventures as soon as the show begins!
Spamalot will be shown on Friday, October 27th, 2017 and Saturday, October 28th, 2017 at the Lake Howell High School auditorium. Ticket prices are $5 at the door.\
