YOU’LL be blown away by the massive set and massively talented cast of Monty Python’s Spamalot!
Flinders Performance Centre will be transformed into medieval England, not Finland (that will make sense when you see the show).
Renowned for its high-calibre theatrical productions, Matthew Flinders Anglican College continues its fine tradition in musical theatre with a cast of 45, an orchestra of 20, and the triple-threat talents of some of the Sunshine Coast’s most exciting rising stars.
Directed by Melissa White, with musical direction by Nick Campbell and choreography by Shae Jackson, Spamalot is full of funny scenes and memorable songs.
You’ll be whistling and singing along to ear worms including He Is Not Dead Yet, The Song That Goes Like This, Find Your Grail and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, given a quest from God to find the Holy Grail, set out on an adventure that sees them discovering their own personal “grails”.
Spamalot is a must-see for the whole family and group bookings are available.
Final performances are at Flinders Performance Centre in Stringybark Rd, Buderim, on May 19 at 7.30pm and May 20 at 2pm and 7.30pm.
