---- — 1) See Spamalot

Muncie Civic Theatre presents Monty Python's SPAMALOT on the Mainstage Theatre this weekend.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for Groups of 10 or more and $10 for students and children. Reserved seating.

The show is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Freaturing songs such as "We're Not Dead Yet," you'll want to jump out of your seat and join the quest.

2) Patriotic performance

Lee Greenwood performs at The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts, 1 Center Green, Carmel, at 8 p.m. tonight

Greenwood could easily talk about the accomplishments in his life, but this high energy entertainer prefers to continue writing and recording with the same passion and integrity that has always fueled his stellar career.

He claims a string of hits including “Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands,” “It Turns Me Inside Out” and “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” and has won numerous industry accolades including the Country Music Association Song of the Year honor as the writer of “God Bless the USA,” which has been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America.

3) Country show

Joe Diffie performs 4 p.m. Sunday at 8 Seconds Saloon in Indianapolis.

General admission seats start at $13.75.

Diffie was a regular hitmaker in the 1990s with songs like "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox" and "John Deere Green."

He was known for his ballads and rock-inspired novelty songs.
