Big thanks to the RLOP for Spamalot

Letter to the Editor from Beth Truant of Warfield

Recently our community was treated to Monty Python’s Spamalot.

This two-act presentation by the Rossland Light Opera Players kept the audience totally engaged and the many people I spoke to expressed delight and enthusiasm at the performances and work of the cast, too numerous to mention, the orchestra and the production team. It was not a show to be missed.

Spamalot takes a modern twist on the tale of the Legendary King Arthur and his quest for the Holy Grail. Yet this musical combined original humour with show girls, cows, “French people,” killer rabbits, multiple eye-catching costume changes and much fanciful dancing.

The puppeteer sure grabbed my attention. The singing was awesome, to say the least. The whole production flowed seamlessly perfectly, and the timing of each scene was exquisite. And the audience involvement in the end was a fun surprise, too.

How fortunate we are to have these dedicated, talented people in our community who offer an opportunity to all ages to experience performance at its best.

Looking forward to more great entertainment.

Beth Truant
