Auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Monty Python’s Spamalot on Sunday, January 26 at 2 p.m. and Monday, January 27th at 6 p.m. in the rehearsal hall of the Lyric Theatre in downtown Tupelo. 

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S 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 showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”  

Those auditioning should be adults at least 18 years of age.  Men’s roles range up to 60 years of age and women up to age 50.  Those auditioning should be prepared to read  from the script and sing.  Email for the music beginning Monday, January 13th.  

Christi Houin will direct and production dates for the show are April 23-25, 2020.  
For more information contact the director at 662-891-3157 or call the TCT office at 662-844-1935.
