Based on the uproarious midnight-movie favorite Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this irreverent musical parody of the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table won the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical. Arthur, Lancelot, Galahad and “brave, brave Sir Robin” skewer more Broadway musical traditions than French soldiers and killer rabbits on the quest that has left millions of theatergoers rolling in the aisles. Recommended for mature audiences. Produced by the SFA schools of Music and Theatre.

SPAMALOT is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide, 570 Seventh Avenue, Suite 2100, New York, NY 10018. (866) 378-9758. www.theatricalrights.com

When their patriarch disappears one hot summer night, the colorful Weston family hurriedly assembles at the rural Oklahoma home of his hilariously caustic, pill-popping wife. Their outrageous conflicts, secrets and lies collide to launch the corrosive comedy that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and became the basis for the hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Recommended for mature audiences.
