The Orlando Shakespeare Theater dropped a local celebrity-studded video Saturday, Aug. 29. 

To promote their production of Monty Python's Spamalot, a parody of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the actors of Orlando Shakespeare Theater galavanted around, singing in costume with hordes of people.

The video kicks off with Mayor Buddy Dyer offering the overly depressed King Arthur some motivational words before he gets into the singing swing of things.

The knights in sweaty polyester continue to serenade the city with elaborate umbrella routines and flash mobs on the Loch Haven Park lawn.

Many other members of the Orlando community make cameos such as Orlando City Soccer President Phil Rawlins and the Orlando Magic mascot Stuff.

Orlando Shakespeare Theater will put on Monty Python's Spamalot from Sept. 9 through Oct. 11. Tickets can be purchased at orlandoshakes.org.
