Hairspray is flying at Truvy’s beauty shop and the motto is “There is no such thing as natural beauty.”

Over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to gossip, needle, and support each other through thick and thin from weddings and divorces to babies and funerals. And they do it with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair.

Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the fresh Best Musical Tony Award-winning Broadway hit and irreverent parody of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

The quest for the Holy Grail challenges these noblemen to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths.

Complete with a bevy of beautiful women, catapulting cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and the somewhat odd Knights Who Say “Ni,” combined with lively musical numbers, strange places, and even stranger people, this is one night of theater audiences will eat right up!

Is it one of the suspicious newlyweds or the spinster with the curious background? Perhaps it’s the architect, the retired Army major or the strange man running from his past.

As information is revealed, the intrigue builds as Agatha Christie’s, the mistress of mystery, and her best-known head scratcher unfolds to its surprising conclusion.
