Monty Python's Spamalot Young@Part® is the authorized 65-70 minute edition of the Broadway musical for elementary schools, middle schools, and youth theatres. Through a series of workshops with industry professionals and actual kids, the Young@Part® musicals are tailor-made for younger actors. Song keys are changed where needed, and songs and scenes are edited for time and content while keeping the spirit of the original Broadway show intact. There are strong roles for both girls and boys and can feature any size ensemble/chorus, who are featured throughout the show.
This 2005 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical centers around King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail. After a rather silly bit of miscommunication leads us briefly to Finland, our king and his ever faithful squire Patsy begin to search for knights to accompany him on his Quest. Traveling atop his mighty steed (which is really just Patsy banging two coconut shells together) he finds his first knight in the unlikely guise of Dennis, a hideous local mud farmer. After convincing the locals that he is the king by conjuring the Lady of Lake to prove it, Dennis is transformed into Sir Galahad. The rest of the knights are found far and wide and The Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, send our stalwart band on their way. They meet up with an unforgettable slew of outrageously kooky characters, and musical hilarity ensues as Arthur and the Knights pursue their quest.
