SPRINGVILLE — Tickets for the Springville-Griffith Institute High School musical “Spamalot,” which will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 15 – 17, at the Lyle G. Palmer Auditorium in the high school, are now available.
Approximately 75 students have spent months preparing for the show, which is an award-winning musical comedy based on the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
“Spamalot” will feature a cast of approximately 50 students and a crew of approximately 25. The Friday and Saturday performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday performance will be held at 2 p.m.
LADY AND THE KING — Nick Benstead plays the role of King Arthur and Chelsea May is the Lady of the Lake.
The show’s description reported that the performance is “lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail,’ ‘Spamalot’ retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people.”
“Hysterically funny and full of energy, the S-GI High School cast is busy, preparing to pull out every stop in this over-the-top musical,” said Director Julie Noeson.
