Broadway show coming to Sandusky

SANDUSKY — The Sandusky State Theatre’s executive director Chris Parthemore said the upcoming performance will “make you laugh,” and “If you like to have fun and laugh, this one is for you.”

This week, the venue presents the 2005 Tony Award-winning Best Musical “Monty Python’s Spamalot” to the stage for a two-run special. Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the theater, 107 Columbus Ave., in downtown Sandusky.

“The Broadway national tour is going to bring Broadway back to Sandusky,” Parthemore said. “They say it’s lovingly ripped off from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

Monty Python started out as a sketch comedy show, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” which aired on BBC from 1969 and 1974.

If you don’t have much knowledge of the show, you are still promised a night full of laughter with “Spamalot,” Parthemore said, considering the award-winning musicals is jam-packed with parodies, silliness and even flying cows.

Audience members can also expect a hilarious performance about Knights of the Round Table at Camelot quest for the holy grail.

“It’s a big deal,” Parthemore told program host Matt Westerhold. “It’s a big deal to have Broadway back in Sandusky.”
