Weathervane Playhouse presents “Monty Python’s Spamalot” June 2 to June 26. This hilarious homage to the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” contains all of the irreverent humor from the film from the Knights who say “Ni,” shrubbery, and killer rabbits, set to toe tapping tunes such as “Always Look on the Bright side of Life.”
Director Dave Stebbins brings his talents to Weathervane for the first time. “I’m so happy to be directing such a talented mix of veterans as well as enthusiastic young people,” shared Stebbins. “It’s a great mix and promises to be a super show with lots of fun and silliness for everyone!”
The original Broadway production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot” was nominated for 14 Tony Awards and won three (including Best Musical for the 2004-2005 season).
“Cult musicals are such a fantastically fun genre!” said Weathervane’s Artistic Director, Melanie Pepe. “This year, we offer the cult musical ‘Monty Python’s Spamalot,’ a quirky, offbeat, eccentric, surreal, outrageous, unique and cartoony musical with zany characters, an implausible plot and the most unconventional settings we can imagine. Next season, we continue with ‘Little Shop of Horrors.’ Don’t feed the plant!”
“Monty Python’s Spamalot” runs from June 3 to June 26. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $26 for adults and $10 for children (17 and younger), $10 for college students with a current ID. Senior discounts are available on Thursdays and Sundays for $22. Tickets can be purchased at weathervaneplayhouse.com or by calling the box office at 330-836-2626.
