MANHATTAN -- The musical "Monty Python's Spamalot" will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium as part of the 2010-2011 McCain Performance Series.

Based on the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Spamalot" is a musical comedy about King Arthur and his knights of the round table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. The stage performance includes characters such as dancing divas and knights, killer rabbits, and a legless knight.

The production has received several awards, including 2005 Tony Awards for best musical and best director; the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for best musical; and the 2006 Grammy Award for best musical show album.

"Spamalot" features music and lyrics by the award-winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez, and choreography by Casey Nicholaw.

The McCain show is produced by Stephen B. Kane, Michael McFadden and Phoenix Entertainment. It is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Tickets are on sale now at $19.50 for K-State students, and $39 for the general public. Discounts for K-State faculty and staff, military, and children are also available. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office, 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, or by calling 785-532-6428. More information is available online at http://www.k-state.edu/mccain.
