Theater @ UWSP - Spamalot -
Friday, November 17, 2017
7:30 p.m.

UWSP - Jenkins Theatre, in the Noel Fine Arts Center - Click for Mapquest Map
1800 Portage Street
Stevens Point, WI

It’s theater season and time for a dinner and play!

Join us on Friday November 17th. We’ll begin the evening at 5:30 with dinner at Michelle’s Restaurant, 513 Division Street, Stevens Point (I’m told that they have a wonderful $10 Walleye dinner). From there we’ll proceed to the Jenkins Theater in the UWSP Noel Fine Arts Center, 1800 Portage Street, Stevens Point, for the 7:30 production of “Spamalot”. Feel free to attend just the dine out, just the play, or both.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention a bevy of beautiful show girls? The 2005 Broadway production won 3 Tony Awards including "Best Musical" and received 14 Tony Award nominations . "[Spamalot] exploits about every opportunity that a piece of muscial theater can offer, all the while laughing at itself for being a musical." -Star Telegram

Please RSVP as soon as you can but no later than November 9th to, Joe Tylka at joetylka@yahoo.com or (715) 321-2999. Ticket cost is $24 and checks made out to CWN can be mailed to Joe Tylka, 4591 DuBay Drive, Mosinee, WI 54455. Hope to see you there!
