The local acting troupe is looking for some people to bring a musical version of Monty Python's comedy to the stage in Havre.
Montana Actors' Theatre is holding auditions for "Monty Python's Spamalot" tonight and Thursday, starting at 7 each night, in The Little Theatre in Montana State University-Northern's Cowan Hall.
"Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail,' 'Monty Python's Spamalot' retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls?" a release on the auditions asked.
The release said the production has large singing, dancing, and speaking roles for at least 10 men and women. Smaller non-speaking and chorus roles also available, it said.
The production's show dates are scheduled for Jan. 14-15, 20-22 and 27-19.
The musical play has won numerous awards. The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs.
"The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as the characters search for the Holy Grail and 'always look on the bright side of life,'" the release said.
