Cows + killer rabbits + French people = Monty Python’s SPAMALOT

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S 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.

Aiken Community Theatre will bring the comedic romp through Camelot and
“lovingly ripped” from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail to its stage, 126 Newberry St., beginning Friday, May 19, according to the theater’s website.

The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. May 19-20, 25-26 and at 2 p.m. May 21. Visit the website for tickets or call (803) 648-1438.
