Come be silly and enjoy a spectacular evening of fun.." BPA's Resident Musical Director Josh Anderson (Little Shop of Horrors, Avenue Q, Shrek, The Musical, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) is equally enthusiastic, and says, "SPAMALOT has a rollicking score and a fabulous band that perfectly compliments the humor of Monty Python.
