RICHARDSON – “Spamalot” is a new socially distant show taking place at the Repertory Company Theatre Mar. 19-28, based on the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
The story follows King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their journey to find the Holy Grail. “Spamalot” is filled with colorful characters, unforgettable moments, and big musical numbers with a pandemic twist.
“Because of COVID protocols within the theater, we do have a huge stage here and so we are able to space ourselves out. We will be wearing masks when there are a lot of people on stage,” said Actor, Jared Duncan, who plays “Patsy.”
Fans of “Monty Python” will be familiar with much of the storyline. However, the stage production at RCT does have several surprises in store.
“The writers of the show actually decided to create a socially distant version. This is not a full stage production, some of the original numbers have been removed and they have added dialogue to it, which has actually increased the humor,” said Actor Aaron Gallagher, who plays “King Arthur.”
“Spamalot” at Repertory Company Theatre runs Mar. 19 through Mar. 28 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
