Book and lyrics by Eric Idle,
music by John Du Prez and Eric Idle. A musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the motion picture "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"
from the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin. Brought to the stage by the creative team of Todd Poelstra, Mickey Nugent, Martha Reed and Dr. Mark Nelson. SPAMALOT is a highly irreverent parody of the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table, and features a bevy of beautiful showgirls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and Not Dead Fred. SPAMALOT adds swipes at Vegas glitz and Broadway conventions to the film's anarchic spirit. The fractured tale of the quest of King Arthur and his comically inept knights for the Holy Grail has been woven into another quest: that of bringing the king and his entourage to the enchanted land called Broadway. The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including "Best Musical," and received 14 Tony Award nominations. ASL interpreters: March 4. 

SPAMboree! opening night celebration, Thursday, February 26, 6:30-7:30 p.m.  Come early and enjoy hilarious activities “nudge-nudge” and refreshments.

THE MANDRAKE
April 16–26
Thu.-Sat. at 7:30 p.m., Sun. at 2 p.m. 
Black Box Theatre

Tickets $15 with discounts for students/seniors/PCC employees and groups.

A comedy about love and lust by Niccolo Machiavelli. Directed by Dr. Deborah Davis. This delightful comedy combines the politico, Machiavelli’s, philosophy "the ends justify the means" with the exploits of lovers, liars, and fools. Set in 16th century Renaissance Florence, THE MANDRAKE satirizes the escapades of a young man of the upper class who becomes helplessly infatuated with a beautiful and virtuous woman, who happens to be inconveniently married to an elderly and gullible aristocratic lawyer. With the help of a manipulative servant, a scheming mother, a corrupt priest, and a certain aphrodisiacal plant, the plan unfolds to seduce the lady for his own. One thing leads to another and everybody gets what he/she wants. The play’s political references are just as relevant today, as in 16th century Italy. ASL interpreters: April 23.
