Cresson, Pa. – Mount Aloysius College’s theatre department will present Monty Python’s “Spamalot” virtually this March. The show, a musical comedy based on the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” will be presented in concert-style, and will feature 12 actors playing 30 roles. The production will be streaming March 4, 5, and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and March 7 at 2:00 p.m.
“Spamalot” is the story of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and their many hijinx while on the quest to find the Holy Grail. The 2005 Broadway run of the show won three Tony Awards, and went on to two successful productions on London’s West End. The show features 26 musical numbers.
“In choosing Monty Python’s Spamalot, we really wanted something that was fun, that could bring some much needed laughs to our actors and our audience,” said director Nathan Magee.
“We also had to figure out a way to do this within our COVID protocols for everyone involved. Early on we decided to do the show socially distant, masked, and with no live audience. It has been a different experience, and has been challenging at times, but I think people are going to really enjoy our production. I know I have certainly enjoyed working on it with this amazing cast and crew.”
Tickets for the production are available through BookTix. A single viewer streampass costs $6, and a family/group viewer streampass costs $12.50.
