Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this hilariously over-the-top extravaganza -- written by Monty Python alum Eric Idle -- borrows lovingly (and unapologetically) from the film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Children's Musical Theater (CMT) San Jose's production of this nutty tale of King Arthur and his epic quest with the Knights of the Round Table features such outlandish oddities as flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows, killer rabbits and the Knights Who Say Ni. If you've been seeking a reminder to "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," you need look no further than CMT's presentation of Monty Python's Spamalot. Learn More

The "children" are young adults and are talented. This play doesn't have an amazing plot or incredible scenery (even on Broadway), but it's guaranteed for laughs. In addition, since they bring a few audience members to each play, the show is different every time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the play and would definitely recommend it, especially at the Goldstar price!
Directed & Choreographed by Kevin R. Hauge
The thrills … the chills…the SPELLING? You’ll love this hilarious, high-energy performance of the Tony Award-winning 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Called “disarming,” “quirky” and “wonderful.” this is a show that reminds you of the joy of live musical theater.
Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
