THE STORY:

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," this Young@Part adaptation of MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight casts and audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”

You guys are amazing. No matter how big or small the role the kids love being part of the show. It’s my daughter's second home.

 

This is a well run camp. We are very satisfied with our experience at Stages.

 

The team that put on this show was incredible.

 

Great job by all. Stages runs like a well-oiled machine with a lot of compassion and heart
 

Stages has given my children so many amazing memories and they will continue to return to do amazing shows with you.

 

We had a wonderful experience! We are already seeing if we can swing doing an audition and definitely something over next summer.

 

Always impressed by what the creative team is able to accomplish with the children in such a short amount of time!

 

Impressive! 

 

Everyone was wonderful!

 

I’m so grateful for the kindness, patience and willingness of the creative team to give ALL children opportunities to shine on stage.
