‘Spamalot,’ ‘The Full Monty’ in repertory at Thingamajig Theatre

By Tim Moore
Special to The PREVIEW

Thingamajig Theatre’s production of “Spamalot” is nearly upon us, and we are the first theatre in the state of Colorado to produce this show fresh off of Broadway.

Friday June 14, marks the date of the Champagne Opening for this comical musical, so get your tickets now before this spectacular event passes you by.

“Monty Python’s Spamalot” is lovingly ripped off from the movie “Monty Python and The Holy Grail,” bringing some of your favorite moments from the screen to the stage.

Some of Monty Python’s other famous moments featured in their other movies or television episodes are also featured. For those of you familiar with Monty Python and “The Life of Brian,” the finale song, “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life,” makes an appearance in “Spamalot.” The evil bunny rabbit with “big, pointy teeth” has a role to play as well.

Anyone remember the Knights Who Say Ni? Dusty Hebert, brother of Robin Hebert from the 2011-2012 season, stars as the Knight of Ni and is truly impressive with his perfect characterization of one of Monty Python’s favorite “villains.”

Not yet convinced to come? Who could pass up a version of the most famous medieval tale of all time? In “Spamalot,” King Arthur, on his quest for the Holy Grail with Excalibur and the Knights of the Round Table by his side, hits the stage with a comical twist. The mental image of knights in chainmail and armor singing and dancing their way to the Holy Grail should have you immediately convinced to come witness such a wonderful spectacle.

“Spamalot” opens June 14 and runs in repertory with “The Full Monty” through Aug. 11.

Tickets for the Champagne Opening are $30 in advance and $35 at the door, with all other shows costing $27 at the door and $22 in advance.
