Spamalot, the hysterical musical comedy “lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail” will be hitting the stage for the first time ever in Chatham-Kent this November. Theatre Kent is presenting the show at the Kiwanis Theatre on Nov. 5-7, 13 & 14, at 7:30pm.
Some of the famous Monty Python scenes Theatre Kent is featuring include The Knights Who Say Ni, The Black Knight, the Killer Rabbit, and some ferocious French taunting. This show will be filled with non-stop laughs, and will also feature fantastic dance numbers, as well as hummable tunes.
Directed by Jamie Johnston, and musically directed by Tom Overton, the two have collaborated in recent years on various musical favourites performed by Theatre Kent, including Chicago, White Christmas, Evita, Beauty and The Beast, and The Littlest Rockette.
Starring in Spamalot as King Arthur is Joseph Benoit. Benoit recently co-starred for Theatre Kent as Phil in White Christmas.
In addition to the regular shows at 7:30pm, there is a “Peasant’s Feast” option, which adds on a themed dinner before the show.
Tickets for Spamalot are also available as part of Theatre Kent’s Subscription Season, which also includes Having Hope At Home in February, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in May.
Tickets are available at cktickets.com, or call 519-354-8338. More information about the show is located on the show website.
