SPAMALOTDirected by Carole Dhu
This outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story will delight audiences as the knights search for the Holy Grail ....
Lovingly ripped off from the classic 1975 comedy film “Monty Python the Holy Grail”, MONTY PYTHON’S 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. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? (The witch burnings unfortunately were too expensive to stage and we apologise in advance that those scenes have been cancelled!)
This outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story will delight audiences as the knights search for the Holy Grail, meet the Lady of the Lake, amid an assortment of several outlandish characters and “always look on the bright side of life.” The show, written by original python member Eric Idle with John Du Prez, won Broadway’s Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005.
The show features among its songs the comic numbers I Am Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the show’s cheery anthem Always Look On the Bright Side of Life.
Peppered with familiar quotes such as “It’s just a flesh wound” and “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” Python tragics, as well as the uninitiated, are sure to be caught up in the adventures of the hapless King Arthur and his well intentioned band of knights. Welcome to 932 AD. Come and join the resplendent silliness of this light hearted musical in April 2021.
