Spamalot


"God, the almighty and all-knowing, has misplaced a cup?" And so the search for the Holy Grail begins.

Monty Python's Spamalot is a musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail and spoofs everything there is to love about musical theatre. The original 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards including Best Musical and received 14 Tony nominations.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present Spamalot at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theatre on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21, 2016.

 

Cabaret


The Wiz is the soulful African American version of the classic Wizard of Oz fairy tale with a modern twist that retells the tale. The Charleston Light Opera Guild will present this mega hit at the Civic Center Little Theatre on June 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 during FestivALL Charleston 2016.

The Wiz originated on Broadway in 1975, became a hit movie in 1978 and has enjoyed several reincarnations including a holiday 2015 television LIVE rendition. The music by Charlie Smalls is a lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul. The score includes Ease on Down the Road, Home, If You Believe, No Bad News, Mean ole Lion, No Bad News and Everybody Rejoice.
