“Monty Python’s Spamalot” at Parkland Theatre in Champaign


It’s difficult to believe that Monty Python’s Flying Circus ran originally for only five years, from 1969 to 1974. The troupe’s best-known film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, followed in 1975, and I remember kids in high school endlessly repeating lines from the movie. Many of those lines are preserved in the Tony-winning musical Monty Python’s Spamalot, the next show at Parkland Theatre in Champaign. We’ll have a live preview on the Tuesday edition of “Live and Local.”
