Middler schoolers delivered an evening of uproarious comedy at the production of Monty Python’s SPAMALOT Young@Part in Dillingham Hall on November 3 and 4. The family-friendly middle school adaptation, inspired by the classic film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” told the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on a quest for the Holy Grail.
Featuring a talented cast of 48 students in grades 6 – 8, the show was a laugh-out-loud experience. “We couldn’t stop laughing during rehearsals,” Director Vanessa Mazzullo shared. “We had so much fun putting this together.”
The young actors mastered various accents, including Cockney, Southern British English, Scottish and French, to bring distinct characters with rich backstories to life. Additionally, they honed the essential art of comedic timing.
Beyond the laughs, the production carried a profound message. Mazzullo explained, “King Arthur and his knights go on a quest to find the Holy Grail. They travel from all corners of the world to seek the Grail, only to find it is all within us. I love this message, and I hope audiences walked away with this lesson.”
