During an early August run Griffin Knotwell, son of Jim and Denise Knotwell of Lincoln and grandson of Beryl Knotwell of Wauneta, tackled the role of King Arthur in a Lincoln Haymarket Theatre production of Monty Python’s “Spamalot”.

Knotwell was featured on the front page of the entertainment section of the Lincoln Journal Star, at right, along with Sam Colwell, left.

Knotwell, 16, and Colwell, 14, are members of the Nebraska Youth Theatre. Last week’s performances were only the second nonprofessional production of the Tony Award-winning musical comedy with the Haymarket production featuring a 48-member cast and an eight-piece orchestra. Nebraska Youth Theatre founder and production director Fred Stuart is working closely with “Spamalot” creators Eric Idle and John Du Prez in preparing a script for nonprofessional theatres of the musical based on the 1975 film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” which spoofs the chronicles of King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail.
