This deliciously irreverent musical spoof of the Arthurian legend features an abundance of outrageous characters which include King Arthur and his offbeat knights, beautiful showgirls, killer rabbits, and flatulent Frenchmen. Cheeky shenanigans poke fun at human foibles, but Spamalot reminds us to “always look at the bright side of life.”
Director Amanda Schenstead, music director Diane Taylor-Neale, and choreographers Claire Castle and Breeann DeHaven have gathered a talented mix of performers. An engaging plot and colourful characters are at the core of this energetic production, which includes the musical numbers “He Is Not Dead Yet,” “All For One,” and “The Song That Goes Like This.”
