West Fargo Summer Arts Intensive Stages Monty Python's SPAMALOT, Now thru 8/9
The West Fargo SUMMER ARTS INTENSIVE will present Monty Python's SPAMALOT today, August 1, 2, 7, 8 & 9 at 7:30pm and August 3 at 2:30pm at West Fargo High School.
This outrageous musical comedy "lovingly ripped off" from the cult classic film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, features a chorus line of dancing divas, flying cows, killer rabbits, flatulent Frenchmen, and a legless, armless knight to tell the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail.
SPAMALOT is the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical. It features a book and lyrics by Monty Python alum, Eric Idle, and music by Idle and John Du Prez. This hysterically irreverent production is adapted from the original Holy Grail screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. West Fargo SUMMER ARTS INTENSIVE's production will serve as the show's regional, amateur premiere.
Led by local arts educators and professionals committed to quality, individualized training in a positive and supportive educational environment, SUMMER ARTS INTENSIVE is made possible through collaboration with the West Fargo Public Schools. Its mission is to further develop the personal and artistic talents of emerging young artists as they gain a comprehensive understanding of theatre production and performance. SPAMALOT, which features a cast, crew, and orchestra of 50+ artists from around the Fargo-Moorhead area and marks the fourth production for SUMMER ARTS INTENSIVE following previous productions of PIPPIN, A CHORUS LINE, and last year's hit, CHICAGO.
