The Collingswood Community Theatre is bringing the
fabulously whacky musical Spamalot to
the big stage for its winter show. Lovingly
based on the classic cinematic comic masterpiece "Monty Python and the
Holy Grail", Spamalot won the
Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005.
It retells the legendary story of King Arthur and
his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy
Grail. The musical features swipes at
Vegas glitz, the French, and Broadway musical convention, and captures the
film's off-the-cuff and on-the-edge spirit.
Called "Fantastic! Gorgeously silly!" by The New York Post, Spamalot blends cerebral audacity with
slapstick absurdity, bringing to the stage such classic, side-splitting Monty
Python shticks as the Knights Who Say Ni, the killer rabbit, flying cows, and
French taunters. It includes memorable
songs such as "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" and "Find
Your Grail” as well as elaborate production numbers.
The show features a large ensemble cast, and
talented leads including Denny Matousch (Arthur), April Lindley (Lady of the
Lake), CJ Kish (Robin), John Dunn, Jr. (Lancelot), Tom Matousch (Galahad), Ryan
Adams (Belvedere), and Sean Coyle (Patsy).
Performances are at the Scottish Rite Theatre on February
21, 22, 28, and March 1 at 7:30 pm, with matinees on February 22 and March 2
at 2 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults,
$15 for students and seniors. Seating is general admission and tickets

Groups of 10 or more for any one performance may
arrange for reserved seats at just $12 per ticket. Group tickets must be paid and picked up in
advance. No group tickets will be distributed at the ticket table. To arrange for group tickets, contact Terry
