SPAMALOT IS COOKING ON AREA STAGE

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

The Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2005, Monty Python's Spamalot, will open play the Orpheum Theatre in Sioux City for seven shows, December 3-7. Tickets are available for purchase at the Tyson Events Center, Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 712-252-3434. Prices are $35 to $70.

Lovingly "ripped-off" from the internationally famous comedy team's most popular motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python's SPAMALOT also won the 2006 Grammy for Best Musical Show Album.

Priductions are running in North America, London and Australia.

Monty Python isn't a person, but a group of British actors and writers (and one American) that performed their famous comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus on the BBC from 1969 to 1974, with subsequent international fame and success.

Directed by Mike Nichols, Monty Python's SPAMALOT is based on characters created by the wacky Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.

Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python's SPAMALOT features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight.

Shows are: Wednesday, December 3 at 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, December 4 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, December 5 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 6 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sunday, December 7 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
