About the Show

Always look on the bright side of life


Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. This hilarious musical sticks close to the original legend*, but features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people.

Returning early by popular demand, FRC is proud to present Monty Python’s Spamalot! With numbers like “The Song That Goes Like This” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, this Tony Award winner for Best Musical will have you rolling in the aisles (and did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?)

*No it doesn't.

We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and spam a lot!
