Musical Theatre: Grades 6-12
Appropriate for younger audiences, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT: Young@part Edition is based on the 2005 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT.
The story centers around King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail. After a rather silly bit of miscommunication leads us briefly to Finland, our king and his ever faithful squire Patsy begin to search for knights to accompany him on his Quest. He finds his first in the unlikely guise of Dennis, a hideous local mud farmer. After convincing the locals that he is the king by conjuring the Lady of Lake to prove it, Dennis is transformed into Sir Galahad. The rest of the knights are found far and wide and The Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, send our stalwart band on their way. They meet up with an unforgettable slew of outrageously kooky characters and musical hilarity ensues as Arthur and the Knights make their journey.

As the ticking clock reminds you, only 60 minutes remain to complete this oh-so-important predictor of your future. But you didn’t get the review sheets, the teacher doesn’t like you and your classmates are blatantly cheating. Time passes and the voices in your head remind you that though you are having trouble with the test, your personal life is far, far worse. Then you reach the essay question. The good news—it’s an opinion essay. The bad news—it’s in Chinese. And things aren’t going to get better!
