Shakespeare And The Holy Grail. This seldom performed play goes down much better when served in a Monty Python style. Yet you may still receive full credit for having seen King John - one of Shakespeare's Top Forty. And no singing!

No Theatre Parking On Closing Weekend
If you are attending a closing weekend show (Sep 4-5), plan to arrive about an hour early as the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival will consume all of the theater parking. There is a shuttle bus to the Festival and thus GAC. Come enjoy the Festival before the show!
Watch the Play, then See the Movie!
In coordination with The Old Greenbelt Theatre, all tickets for the Friday September 4th showing of King John will also include admission to the 11PM showing of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Shakespeare's words and a modern setting combine to retell that old story of a young person employing wits, courage, friendship and questionable ethics to win a noble marriage. (The girl is the protagonist and the boy the reluctant prize; the plot is driven by female agency in a way all too rare in stories both classic or modern, raising questions of how gender is performed, and with what consequences).
