6/21/17-7/23/17: Kristen will be returning to the Camelot stage, starring in SPAMalot as The Lady of the Lake! More info to come! "Lovingly ripped off" from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Camelot is pleased to present Spamalot as its summer musical. This Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is a comedy featuring the Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, accused witches and other Python touches. King Arthur is traveling around England recruiting his Knights of the Round Table. When he and his band of misfit knights finally gather in Camelot, they receive a charge from God to find the Holy Grail. The quest brings the King and his Knights to strange places and into the company of strange characters, challenging them to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths. Spamalot also adds swipes at Vegas glitz and Broadway conventions to the film's anarchic spirit.
