Book and Lyrics by Eric Idle

Music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle

This Tony Award winner for Best Musical and Drama Desk Award winner for Outstanding New Musical is a comedy “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. King Arthur, so dubbed when the Lady of the Lake gave him Excalibur, travels England in search of Knights for his round table who go on a search for the Holy Grail. With musical numbers like “He Is Not Dead Yet” and “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life,” Monty Python’s Spamalot  “raises silliness to an art form!” –The Sunday Times

“Director Scott Ferguson is a broad comedy specialist. It's difficult to imagine a better cast than the one Ferguson has assembled to sit around the round table.”

        -Chris Davis, Memphis Flyer

“'SPAMALOT' IS SILLY, OFFENSIVE AND OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY.  Director Scott Ferguson...has great gifts.”

        -Jon Sparks, GoMemphis.com

“This merry musical, directed by Scott Ferguson, gallops through a ludicrous version of the Arthurian legend with the help of imaginary horses, an outstanding orchestra and a skilled cast. It's an elaborate story to tell, racing us around the world and through a plethora of perils alongside blundering knights and their hapless king.”
