    SPAMALOT
    Book and Lyrics by Eric Idle;
    Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle

    APRIL 28, 29, 30 & MAY 1, 2016

    Sure, it’s a musical that’s been “lovingly ripped off” from the adored comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and that’s exactly why this riotous romp through Camelot is one you’ll want to take! Saddle up with King Arthur and his servant Patsy on their quest for the Holy Grail, and cheer them on as they recruit fellow knights, encounter flatulent Frenchmen, thwart killer rabbits, and more! Critically acclaimed Spamalot is filled with so much singing and dancing silliness that you’ll “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” no matter what comes your way!

    Friday, May 13, 2016 | 6 p.m.
    Jeanne Hamilton Olofson Plaza
    (Inclement weather location is the Mabee Fieldhouse)

    There are no tickets required for the Sending Ceremony, but we do request that graduates submit a reservation. Watch your Avila email for more details in March 2016.

    The Sending Ceremony is our baccalaureate celebration that all graduates, Bachelor’s and Master’s, are encouraged to attend with families. All participants will receive a special gift medallion during the ceremony. The ceremony celebrates our Avila Heritage and has become an important part of our Avila tradition. Graduates process into this ceremony as a class. The 35 minute ceremony is followed by a big reception (food, beer and wine are served) where it has become common that families have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff.

    Graduates are asked to dress business casual, no caps and gowns. Graduates should meet in the Goppert Lobby at 5:30 p.m.

    Please plan to make this Avila celebration a part of your graduation weekend.

    Questions regarding the Sending Ceremony should be directed to Campus Ministry at 816-501-2423.
