Congratulations to the cast and crew of the College Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot, which took place at the Padua Campus Theatrette this week to rave reviews.

With four public shows and a matinee performance for students from St Patrick’s School, Cooma, the cast and crew had a busy week, bringing to an end months of hard work.

Spamalot, a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is an irreverent parody of the Legend of King Arthur and Camelot. The story follows King Arthur as he gathers his Knights of the Round Table and sets out to find the Holy Grail.

The College production was typically ‘Pythonesque’, with surreal and slapstick comedy, dramatic acting, witty improvisation, theatrical choreography, catchy songs, and intricate costumes. The talent that students brought to the acting, singing, and dancing made for a truly entertaining experience.

Congratulations to the entire cast, backstage team, sound and lighting crew, production team, choreographers, stage designers, costume and prop creators, hair and makeup team, front of house, and all students, parents, and staff who made the production possible. Particular thanks and congratulations to the core production team of Petrina Mansfield, Nicola McLennan, Bella van Doorn, Amanda Knott, Jacinta Paquay, and Performing Arts Captain Flynn Gibbs-Patterson.

The College also thanks the team from Complete Events Group for their technical assistance at each show and in the lead up to the event.

It was great to see the MacKillop community enjoying the talents of our staff and students again this year. Congratulations!
