See SPAMALOT in Bolingbrook

Monty Python's SPAMALOT is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways.

One of the musical's creators, Eric Idle, explained the title in a February 2004 press release:

"I like the title SPAMALOT a lot. We tested it with audiences on my recent US tour and they liked it as much as I did, which is gratifying. After all, they are the ones who will be paying Broadway prices to see the show. It comes from a line in the movie which goes: 'we eat ham, and jam and Spam a lot.'"

The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, won three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for Best Musical of the 2004–2005 season and received 14 Tony Award nominations. During its initial run of over 1,500 performances it was seen by more than two million people and grossed over $175 million.

THEATRE-ON-THE-HILL (TOTH) is a 501c3 not-for-profit theatre company that stages indoor and outdoor live dramatic productions at the Bolingbrook Performing Arts Center in the west suburbs of Chicago. TOTH has cast more than 60 actors drawn from the community and professional trade.

With great dancing, music, and tremendous British Humor in the classic style of Monty Python, TOTH is bringing this award-winning event to Bolingbrook.

The show opens July 11, runs Fridays, Saturdays (8pm) and Sundays (3pm) through July 26.

      If you do not wish to be out in it - or for some reason the show is cancelled this evening (unlikely) - you will be able to use your tickets on any other date.

    I suggested this because it has elements of "breaking the 4th wall" wherein, you get to a comfort level in the "Arthurian" age and suddenly an actor comes out to sing a solo about not being in more scenes in the play.

    BTW - I'm in that 60+ person cast.
