Clarksville’s Roxy Regional Theatre launches 31st Season with Monty Python’s “Spamalot”, September 13th – October 19th

 

Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Flying cows, killer rabbits, beautiful show girls and rude Frenchmen are just some of the oddities and marvels which will be on hand to usher in the Roxy Regional Theatre’s 31st season with the opening of the Tony Award-winning musical comedy sensation Monty Python’s “Spamalot” on Friday, September 13th, at 8:00pm.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” this hysterically irreverent musical retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. But before they can find the grail, they’re taking a little side-trip to the Queen City!  Ooh-la-la!

Remembering Julia Martin

 

“This boy is ignorance.  This girl is want.  Beware of them both, and all of their degree.  But, beware of the boy most.”- The Ghost of Christmas Present in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
