MONTY PYTHON’S EDUKATIONAL SHOW is the only authorized collection of Monty Python sketches and songs available for performance. This brand new show is the genius of Monty Python in a hilarious 80 minute musical revue, written for performance by young actors in North America, grades 8 through college. Junior troupes, high schools and universities can license this show.
This officially-licensed Monty Python show is an amazing way to introduce your young actors to the masters of comedic writing and performance. Featuring the greatest hits of the iconic sketches and songs from the ever-popular “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” TV show, this show is appropriate for all audiences ages eight and up. “Cheese Shop,” “Argument Clinic,” “The Lumberjack Song,” “Dead Parrot,” “The Universe Song,” “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” and many more Python gems are included, with a decidedly irreverent ‘educational’ theme.
The music and light choreography are a breeze and your authorized performance materials include, scripts, scores, sound effects and…the real Terry Gilliam animations, easily projected or sent to monitors in full color HD! These animations are available only for use in licensed productions of the show and no other use of any kind is permitted.
MONTY PYTHON’S EDUKATIONAL SHOW is available to license now in North America for Middle Schools, High Schools, Youth Troupes and College/University programs.
