College of the Siskiyous Fall 2017 Production - "Spamalot"

Monty Python's Spamalot

The College of the Siskiyous Theatre Department presents our fall musical production of Spamalot, written by Eric Idle and adapted from the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Neil Carpentier-Alting directs this popular broadway musical, together with Ron Slabbinck as Musical Director, and new COS theater faculty member, Christian Richards as Choreographer.

Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways. 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.

We would rate this production PG, with some mild language and adult situations. If you are not aquainted with Monty Python I would suggest you do a web search and watch one of their many videos available online. Fair warning! Their humor is not for everyone.

Performances will be November 10, 11, 17, 18 at 7:00 pm and November 12 and 19 at 3:00 pm in the COS Kenneth Ford Theater.

Tickets are $15 General Admission, $10 Students/Seniors, and $35 family 4-pack. They are available in advance at the COS bookstore or can be purchased at the theater box office as early as 1 hour before curtain.
