Tidewater players in Havre de Grace to stage Monty Python comedy ‘Spamalot’
Where can you watch King Arthur ride regally on an imaginary horse to the beat of two coconut shells? Or see a cow catapulted? Or a Trojan rabbit? Only in “Spamalot,” the musical based on the cult movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
Zany and over-the-top, “Spamalot,” as directed by Laurie Starkey of Tidewater Players, offers a lot of laughs and surprises… and even a tap number. Book and lyrics are by Eric Idle, with music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle.
Audiences can watch first-hand as Arthur searches for knights to sit at his round table upstairs at 121 N. Union Ave. in Havre de Grace. Performances are weekends from April 25 through May 18. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. All seats are $18. Visit http://www.tidewaterplayers.com or call 410-939-8433.
A lifelong Monty Python fan, Todd Starkey (Arthur) said he always knew that when the show was available, he would be part of it.
