HHS drama takes quest to Camelot in ‘Monty Python’s Spamalot’
Audience members should prepare themselves to laugh (a lot) in “Monty Python’s Spamalot” put on the Holyoke High School stage by the Dragon Theatre Company this weekend.
Two showings of the musical are set for Friday, Nov. 17, and Saturday, Nov. 18, both at 7:30 p.m. in the HHS auditorium. Tickets can be purchased from cast members or at the door.
Bret Miles is the director, and Pat Wiebers serves as music director in the story that retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their sacred quest to find the Holy Grail.

King Arthur is carefully guided by the mysterious Lady of the Lake, who just may be part of the happy ending audiences hope to see.
