Monty Python’s Spamalot

57th Annual Owen Sound Little Theatre Playbill

Directed by Kathleen Cassidy
Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle
Music by John du Prez & Eric Idle
Based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Nov. 9-11, 15-18, 21-25, 2017

England 932 A.D. A Kingdom divided. To the West the Anglo-Saxons, to the East the French. Above nothing but Celts and some people from Scotland. Lovingly ripped off from the comedy film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot won the 2005 Tony for Best Musical for its tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Featuring flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers like Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot raises silliness to an art form.

TThe Children’s Hour
Directed by Corry Lapointe
By Lillian Hellman
Dramatists Play Service
Feb. 1-3, 7-10, 2018

A drama set in an all-girls New England boarding school run by two women, Karen and Martha, this play shows the power words hold after a malicious young girl starts a rumor about the women that quickly turns to scandal. As the girl watches what she started grow out of control, she sticks by her story, a move that precipitates tragedy for Karen and Martha. The Children’s Hour is an incredible story of intolerance, injustice, life and loss.
