VENUE: Hobby Center For The Performing Arts – Sarofim Hall
Spamalot: May 14 – 26
Monty Python’s Spamalot is an outrageous musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” With music and lyrics by the Grammy Award winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez and book by Eric Idle, Spamalot makes an irreverent parody of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table during their quest for the Holy Grail. This three-time Tony Award winning show, including the Tony Award for Best Musical, also features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows, killer rabbits, one legless knight and several show-stopping musical numbers. With songs like “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life” and “The Song That Goes Like This,” the audience will eat up TUTS’ presentation of Spamalot.

A Chorus Line: July 16 - 21
In an empty theatre, on a bare stage, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It's what they've worked for – with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It's the one opportunity to do what they've always dreamed – to have the chance to dance. Theatre Under The Stars will present A Chorus Line, the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. Winner of nine Tony Awards, including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, the singular sensation returns to the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage for TUTS’ annual free summer musical.
