Monty Python’s SPAMALOT
is a hilarious rip-off of the original film comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” The plot retells the legends of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features lots of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people!!

THE GAZEBO by Alec Coppel is a rollicking “Whodunit” with a twist. The plot centers on a writer of TV whodunits, who is always casting an eye to inventing the perfect crime. He gets in trouble when he has to commit a real do-it-yourself murder to silence his wife’s blackmailer. The rest is a comedy of errors with police detectives and lawyers eyeing the writer as the prime suspect. 

Performances of THE GAZEBO will be held in the Cabaret Theatre:
  • Fridays July 22 and 29 at 8 p.m.
  • Saturdays July 16, 23 and 30 at 8 p.m.
  • Sundays July 17, 24 and 31 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for Seniors (60+). Productions are not intended for children. Tickets are available from the CCBC Box Office at 443-840-ARTS (2787) or online at
