Aurora Fox Theatre Company presents Monty Python’s ’Spamalot’
The Aurora Fox is pleased to be presenting the Tony Award-Winning musical comedy "Spamalot" from April 11 through May 4, 2014 (originally scheduled to close April 27) at The Aurora Fox Arts Center (9900 East Colfax Avenue). Tickets are $28 for adults and $24 for seniors and students and $22 for groups of 10+. For tickets and/or group reservations call: 303-739-1970 or visit: www.AuroraFox.org
Restaged by Piper Lindsay Arpan, who performed in "Spamalot" on Broadway and toured with the traveling company for 3 years, it has assembled a strong cast including: Stephen Day* as Arthur, Sarah Rex* as Lady of the Lake, Dan Langhoff as Galahad, Michael Bouchard as Robin, Kurt Brighton as Lancelot and a talented supporting ensemble (Jim Hitzke, Liam Speros, Rae Klapperich, Kate Vallee*, Jessica Hindsley, Kimberly Wolff*, John, Parker Redford and others). * denotes member of Actors' Equity.
Lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Spamalot" is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend with a little bit of action, a little bit of romance, flying cows, evil rabbits, beautiful show girls and clever songs all delivered with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Rife with bawdy humor, simulated violence and unabashed silliness, this show is not for the very young or those who are easily offended.
Leading up to the show's opening, The Fox and Visit Aurora will be rolling out a "Quest for the Holy Grail" geocache treasure hunt with clues being published on their websites (aurorafox.org, visitaurora.com), The Fox's Facebook page (facebook.com/theaurorafox) and through Twitter (The_Aurora_Fox) beginning March 20. Several prizes will be awarded as the complexity of the caches increases and the grand prize ($500 cash and an official Holy Grail filled with other prizes) will be awarded during the April 18th performance. Look for further information about the roll-out of the "Quest for the Holy Grail" game on the Fox and Visit Aurora websites.
