ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- The Tony Award-winning best musical of 2005, Monty Python's "Spamalot," will return to the Sunrise Theatre in downtown Fort Pierce Jan. 29 at 7 p.m.
Lovingly "ripped-off" from the internationally famous comedy team's most popular motion picture, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Monty Python's "Spamalot" is the winner of three 2005 Tony Awards including best musical and best director (Mike Nichols), as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for best musical.
The original cast recording of Monty Python's "Spamalot" won the 2006 Grammy Award for best musical show album.
Based on the Tony Award-winning direction of Mr. Nichols and the riotous choreography of Casey Nicholaw, Monty Python's "Spamalot" features a book by Eric Idle, based on the screenplay of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" by Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, with music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Mr. Idle and John Du Prez.
Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python's "Spamalot" features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, killer rabbits and one legless knight.
Monty Python's "Spamalot" is produced by Stephen B. Kane, Michael McFadden and Phoenix Entertainment.
Tickets for "Spamalot," priced at $60 and $50, are on sale now. Call the box office at (772) 461-4775 or visit www.SunriseTheatre.com.
