Spamalot, The Concert-ish Version!
Apple Tree Productions is excited to announce our fall virtual play…
“Spamalot, The Concert-ish Version!”
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical also diverts a bit from more traditional versions of the legend. Instead, Spamalot features shenanigans including a line of dancers, flatulent Frenchmen, and killer rabbits.
This hilarious concert version is a manageable size show for any student who wants to participate, has fantastic songs, slapstick action, and is non-stop wacky fun!
Rehearsals will take place on Saturdays from 10am to 12pm beginning October 17th, with a final performance on December 19th. Additional rehearsals will be provided as needed, to accommodate student schedules. Students will learn music in Zoom class format, and will record themselves singing with provided background tracks in their own home. The cost is $150, and the suggested age is 7 to 18 years old. As always, scholarships are available.
