"Spamalot" alert: "Monty Python's "Spamalot," the zany musical comedy adapted from the classic movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," continues through July 27, Muhlenberg Summer Music Theatre, Dorothy Hess Baker Theatre, Trexler Pavilion for Theatre & Dance, Muhlenberg College, 2400 Chew St., Allentown. The show parodies the legend of King Arthur and his band of haphazard knights as they sing and dance their way through a ridiculous divine quest. Ed Bara, above left, as King Arthur, gets around, and Shani Hadjian as The Lady Of The Lake, rises to the occasion. Tickets: muhlenberg.edu/SMT, 484-664-3333
