Fresh from their successful run of “Peter Pan Jr.” in December, the Seaway Valley Theatre Company continues their 2014-15 season with their annual musical production, “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”
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, and features a bevy of beautiful showgirls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls?
The original 2005 Broadway production was nominated for fourteen Tony awards and won three, including “Best Musical.” Much hard work and dedication have gone into this show, which includes many of Cornwall’s finest stage actors.
If you enjoyed the SVTC’s stagings of “Chicago” in 2013 and “Les Misérables” last year, you’re sure to love “Spamalot.” “Monty Python’s Spamalot” will run for five performances at the Aultsville Theatre, 2 St. Lawrence Drive, Cornwall, on February 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 7:30 pm, and February 15 at 1:30 pm. Admission $22.00 for adults, $20.00 for students and seniors, and $18.00 for children under 12. (Please note that this show includes mature content.)
Tickets are available in advance online at www.admission.com, and in person or by phone at the Cornwall Civic Complex Box Office, 100 Water Street East, 613-938-9400. They will also be available at the door upon availability. Seating is reserved, and all ticket sales are subject to applicable service fees. And remember, theatre tickets make most excellent Valentine’s Day gifts! (Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more.)

Listen to the Seeker Chicks interview with Jamie Carr on Friday’s episode of What’s Up? With the Seeker Chicks.
Editor’s Note: We had the chance to catch the premiere of Spamalot on Friday and were quite entertained! The cast and crew did a fabulous job, as always. The costumes, the sets, the singing are all quite impressive. I am always in awe that such a small theater group, from a small town, with limited manpower and finances, can produce plays that surely could rival that of any big city troupe. Kudos again to SVTC.
