Presented by Kanata Theatre's Youth Groups, SPAMALOT Young@Part is “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It parodies the Arthurian legend by following the trials of King Arthur and his servant/horse, Patsy, as they wander the countryside in search of candidates to join the Knights of  the Round Table. In spite of receiving no respect from anyone, including his subjects, eventually Arthur recruits a motley crew including the strangely flatulent Sir Bedevere, the dashingly handsome Sir Galahad, the homicidally brave Sir Lancelot and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.

As in the movie there are many obstacles to overcome in search of the Grail, including dealing with Not Dead Fred, the Knights Who Say Ni, Tim the Enchanter and the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog to mention a few. Throw in a Lady of the Lake who is a high-maintenance diva, a song about Not Dead Fred, an atypical damsel in distress, a Las Vegas style Camelot, and oodles of musical theatre parody and there is plenty of opportunity for audiences to laugh. 

The KT teens are the first group (EVER) to license the YOUNG@PART version of this show, which has been tailored to target a more youthful audience.
