BYRON, Ill. — To close off the 19th season for the Byron Civic Theatre (BCT), they will present Monty Python’s Spamalot.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?
The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including “Best Musical,” and received 14 Tony Award nominations. The show has been hailed as a “no-holds-barred smash hit.”
