A medieval meet-and-greet

A group of monk-like characters, chanting as they crossed the stage, was among the light-hearted moments featured in the EHS production of “Spamalot.” The show, in rehearsal last week, included lots of such comic relief.1 / 4
Dead bodies populated the stage, but invariably some would come alive during the prelude to the musical number “Not Yet Dead,” part of “Spamalot” at EHS. The recovering corpses frustrated several of the show’s players, one of whom was heard to respond “Shut up!” when told a member of the ranks of those gone was actually feeling better.2 / 4
An introduction to Ellsworth High School’s production of “Spamalot,” rehearsed on the EHS stage last week, spotlighted King Arthur on the big screen at the outset, but ultimately turned into a pseudo-weather report. Laughter abounds in the show taken from the “Monty Python” series. 3 / 4
A lot of fun and frivolity happens along the way as King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table search for the Holy Grail in Ellsworth High School’s production of “Spamalot,” which was in rehearsal last week. Arthur (Jacob Fuchs) assembles the team of knights with the help of his assistant, Patsy (Logan Radkey). 4 / 4

The Ellsworth High School Drama Club presents "Spamalot" this past weekend and this Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Ellsworth High School. It's based on the 1970s British sketch comedy, "Monty Python's Flying Circut," and the movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
