        Concord Players - 51 Walden Street -

        Next spring there is a prediction for “plague, with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine” when the Concord Players presents Monty Python’s SpamAlot, a hit Broadway musical based on the 1975 cult classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Join King Arthur and his trusty sidekick/steed Patsy on an uproariously hysterical quest for the Holy Grail and meet the valiant Knights of the Round Table: Sir Lancelot the Homicidally Brave, Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot; Sir Dennis Galahad, The Dashingly Handsome and Sir Bedevere, The Strangely Flatulent. Follow the men into the thick of battle with lewd taunting French soldiers. Cover your ears to evade the poisonous threats of the knights who say “Ni.” Listen to the laments of a disgruntled diva. And find out what it really takes to be successful on Broadway! SpamAlot is full of excitement, heroism, bumbling idiots, and cheerleaders! There is truly something for everyone except for children, the faint of heart, and the chronically uptight—Truly enjoyable for all who are “not yet dead.” Tickets $25.
