Bicentennial Theatre auditions for summer musical Monty Python's SPAMALOT
Book and lyrics by Eric Idle. Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle. "Lovingly ripped off from the film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin.
Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park & Theatre (201 West Jefferson Street, Joliet, IL) will present Monty Python's Spamalot this June. Monty Python's Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur's quest to find the Holy Grail.
Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical also diverts a bit from more traditional versions of the legend. Instead, Spamalot features shenanigans including a line of beautiful dancing girls, flatulent Frenchmen, and killer rabbits.
Outside, there is plague with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine. Throughout the show, Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad. Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight, and the Knights who say Ni.
