Wayland Academy’s Production Of Monty Python’s Spamalot Begins Thursday

(Beaver Dam) Wayland Academy students will begin their production of Monty Python’s Spamalot Thursday. Director Andrew Estervig gives some background information on what the play is about.

“It’s based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The music’s great. It’s hilarious. It’s a great show.”    

Estervig says the show retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in their quest to find the Holy Grail. It stars Kirk Kelly as King Arthur and Ryn Tallman as Lady of the Lake. Estervig encourages the public to come to the performance, even if they have already seen the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie.

“The nice thing is they put more stuff in the show. It’s a musical, there are great songs. The songs are relatable and fun to listen to,” says Estervig. “Then there [are] some parts near the end of the show that are not in [the movie] that are kind of original.”   

There will be performances each night at 7:30pm beginning Thursday night through Saturday, October 29th, in the Lindsay Auditorium on the Wayland Academy Campus in Beaver Dam. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for non-Wayland students and seniors, and free for children five years old or younger. Advanced ticket sales are open and cash payments will be accepted at the door.
