Spamalot opens at Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre

| August 1, 2014 | 0 Comments

ASGTAnnapolis Summer Garden Theatre closes its 2014 performance season with “Monty Python’s Spamalot”, the outrageous musical retelling of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

This highly irreverent musical spoof of Arthurian legend is lovingly ripped off from the 1975 comedy film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and features beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits, and a flatulent Frenchman.

The splendidly silly story intertwines the tale of the king’s quest for the Holy Grail into another Pythonesque plot: that of bringing the king and his harebrained entourage to an enchanted land called Broadway.

Featured songs include “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, “Monks Chant/He is Not Dead Yet”, “Find Your Grail”, “The Song That Goes Like This”, “Diva’s Lament” and “Run Away!” The original 2005 Broadway production of “Spamalot” received 14 Tony Award® nominations and won three Tony Awards®, including Best Musical.

Making his ASGT debut as the show’s director is Jeffery Lesniak, who has directed over 25 shows

in the area, primarily for the Greenbelt Arts Center and Prince George’s Little Theatre. Music director Steve Przybylski and choreographer Rikki Howie Lacewell round out the show’s artistic team.

“Spamalot” opens Thursday, July 31 and runs Thursdays-Sundays at 8:30pm through August 31.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available at www.summergarden.com. For details, visit the

website or call 410-268-9212.

Founded in 1966, ASGT is an all-volunteer community theatre presenting its 49th season of “theatre under the stars” in downtown historic Annapolis.
