Ferris Theatre to Present ‘Spamalot’ in Williams Auditorium

SpamalotFerris State University Theatre will present the Tony Award-winning musical comedy “Monty Python’s Spamalot” Thursday, Oct. 31 through Sunday, Nov. 3 in G. Mennen Williams Auditorium.

Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The production is “lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” that tells the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It is intended for adult audiences.

“The production is a parody and is very silly,” said Katherine LaPietra, coordinator of Ferris’ Theatre program. “The cast is having a lot of fun producing this musical, and I have no doubt that the audience is going to enjoy it as well.”

Ferris students of all majors and backgrounds are involved in the production.

“The variety of people involved in the production makes our theater program different,” LaPietra said. “It is people who love doing it, not people who are forced to because that is what they are majoring in.”

The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Tickets are $5 for students, $7 for seniors and $10 for adults, available at the Williams Auditorium box office one hour before show time or online here.
