Coralville - "City Circle Acting Company will present Monty Python’s Spamalot, October 25 –November 3 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

Winner of the 2005 Tony for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Directed by Krista Neumann, the show tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Spamalot raises silliness to an art form! Rob Keech, who plays Sir Lancelot, says “Audience members will love this show. It’s filled with joke after joke after joke. It’s impossible not to laugh. And the cast is phenomenal and having such a good time. The show will make you happy.”

Music is by Eric Idle, John Du Prez, and Neil Inne with book and lyrics by Eric Idle. The University of Iowa Credit Union is the supporting sponsor.

Tickets are $12-$27 and can be purchased online at or by calling 319.248.9370 or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.
