Ptarmigan Ptheatrics presents: "Spamalot"

Ptarmigan Ptheatrics presents "Spamalot" on stage at NACC

 

  • Northern Arts and Cultural Centre, Yellowknife

If you are a Monty Python fan, or if you are just a fan of great big, funny, lots of singing and dancing, old fashioned Broadway-style shows, you will love Spamalot.

 

Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical also diverts a bit from more traditional versions of the legend. Instead, Spamalot features shenanigans including a line of beautiful dancing girls, a flatulent Frenchmen and killer rabbits. Outside, there is plague with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine.

 

Throughout the show, Arthur (Scott Williams), traveling with his servant Patsy (Haslan Escalante), recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere (Walter Orr), Sir Robin (Robin Williams), Sir Lancelot (Jeremy MacDonald) and Sir Galahad (Josh McGrath). Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake (Ada Elliott), Prince Herbert  (Terrence Leopoldo), Tim the Enchanter (Steve Lacey), Not Dead Fred (Eli Purchase), the Black Knight (Jesse Wheeler) and the Knights who say Ni.
