MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – A well-known comedy musical is being brought to Northern Michigan University’s Forest Roberts Theatre. “Spamalot”, based on the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, tells the legend of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake.
Thursday night at 7:30 P.M. is opening night and the cast explained that any comedy musical can be a difficult performance to perfect, but that this spin on the popular movie will surely have the audience laughing. “Comedy’s hard it’s a science just knowing if you go one beat too late that could be the difference between getting a laugh and not getting a laugh,” commented King Arthur Actor, John Fuller.
The Director Jimmy Ludwig, has performed the musical in previous years and declared that “The Forest Roberts Theatre is gonna be the silliest place in the Upper Peninsula starting tomorrow night”.
“The story is the young actor goes to the old actor who’s on his death bed and says what’s gonna be half of me before you pass away and the old actor says dying is easy, the comedy that’s hard,” commented Ludwig.
Tickets are $20 for General Public and $5 for NMU Students. Click here to purchase tickets to see NMU’s “Spamalot”.
