Musical Comedy Hit ‘Spamalot’ Coming to River Campus

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Nov. 29, 2010 – Monty Phython’s musical comedy, “Spamalot,” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 12 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical, “Spamalot” is the outrageous new musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and The Holy Grail.” Based on the Tony Award-winning direction of Mike Nichols, with a book by Eric Idle and music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Idle and John Du Prez, “Spamalot” tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail.

Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences everywhere are eating up “Spamalot,” said Bob Cerchio, assistant director of the River Campus.

This performance contains mature themes.
