Late Nite Catechism  
Royal George Theatre Late Nite Catechism

Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. Now in its 20th year in Chicago, Late Nite Catechism is a sharp satire, but never mean. Itís simply an evening of fun and laughter.

Monty Python's Spamalot  
Metropolis Performing Arts Centre Monty Python's Spamalot
Monty Python's Spamalot is a hilariously over-the-top extravaganza, penned by Monty Python alum Eric Idle, that borrows lovingly (and unapologetically) from the film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

If you're in need of an irreverent reminder to "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," look no further than the Holy Grail of musical comedies that is Monty Python's Spamalot -- presented at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights.
