(January 6, 2014 – SEATTLE, WA) King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are storming The 5th Avenue Theatre in Monty Python’s Spamalot, the perfect musical to fight the winter blues. Based on the blockbuster 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this hilarious musical comedy lays siege to Seattle featuring a stellar lineup of local talent including Joshua Carter, Allen Fitzpatrick, Richard Gray, Laura Griffith, Louis Hobson, Greg McCormick Allen, Matt Owen, and Dane Stokinger. Called "Fantastic! Gorgeously silly!" by The New York Post, Spamalot blends cerebral audacity with slapstick absurdity in this wacky version of King Arthur’s mythical search for the Holy Grail. Bringing to the stage such classic Monty Python shticks as the Knights Who Say Ni, the killer rabbit, flying cows, and "Always Look on the Bright Side of Your Life," Spamalot is side-splitting fun.
"Monty Python’s Spamalot requires the cream of the crop when it comes to comedic talent," said 5th Avenue Artistic Director and Executive Producer David Armstrong. "With some of Seattle’s funniest musical theater talent in this cast, we know sparks will fly on The 5th Avenue stage this February."
Monty Python’s Spamalot plays January 30-March 2, 2014 (press opening February 6) at The 5th Avenue Theatre (1308 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101). Tickets (starting at $39) may be purchased online at High School Musical Theater, the Rising Star Project, Show Talks with Albert Evans, Curtain Up!, the Student Matinee Program, and Spotlight Nights.
