Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail and even funnier than the Black Death, Spamalot is a riotous comedy heading to The Palace in Manchester and Storyhouse in Chester full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen. Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.
Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical the hilarious Spamalot was written by Python legend Eric Idle, with a fantastic score co-written by John DuPrez including Always Look On The Bright Side of Life.
This year’s cast includes Bob Harms (King Arthur) Sarah Harlington (Lady of the Lake) Rhys Owen (Patsy) Johnathan Tweedie (Sir Lancelot) Norton James (Sir Galahad) Stephen Arden (Sir Robin/Resident Director) Marc Akinfolarin (Sir Bedevere) and Matthew Pennington (Prince Herbert) and is sure to have you rocking in the aisles until your head rolls into the lake. Where it will probably be picked up by some moistened tart practising some farcical aquatic ceremony. If you’re lucky!
This fabulously funny, irreverent, funny, farcical, funny funny show will be at The Palace Theatre Manchester November 7 – November 11, one week after it is at Chester’s brand spanking new Storyhouse Theatre from October 31 – November 4.
