Don’t miss your chance to see these shows performed on the stage at the Duke Family Performance Hall at Davidson College. Visit the DCP web site for more information & tickets or look at the News of Davidson calendar for show dates and times.


 Monty Python’s Spamalot

Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle

Music by John Du Prez, Eric Idle, and Neil Innes

Duke Family Performance Hall, Davidson College

June 21- July 1

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is an irreverent parody of the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, featuring a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. A huge hit on Broadway, Spamalot won the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical.


Steel Magnolias

By Robert Harling

Duke Family Performance Hall, Davidson College

July 19-29

Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Truvy styles the hair of rich, sick, poor, girlish, and cranky women alike. When Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, gets engaged, the excitement of her wedding quickly turns to concern as she faces a risky pregnancy and a myriad of health complications. As the women of Chinquapin make their ways over life’s many hurdles together, they find comfort (and a good deal of playful teasing) in one another.
