Spamalot

Funnier than the black death!  Spamalot is back in a brand-new production from Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester. Spamalot transfers from its critically acclaimed run in Colchester and will open on 11 September 2017 at Blackpool Opera House before embarking on a UK tour for 2017/2018 also visiting Korea in June as part of Selladoor Worldwide’s ongoing International strategy.

Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this spammier than ever production is a riotous comedy 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.

Spamalot was the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, while it enjoyed a victorious West End run. This hilarious show is written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years. The funnyman also wrote the score alongside John DuPrez, famous for his work on Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life amongst a host of other big-name scores.

The new tour is produced by the award winning Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester.  Selladoor’s recent tours include Footloose, American Idiot, Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors.  With star cast to be announced, the company includes; Bob Harms, Sarah Harlington, Marc Akinfolarin, Norton James, Matthew Pennington and Gleanne Purcell-Brown.

Spamalot is directed by Daniel Buckroyd, designed by Sara Perks with choreography from Ashley Nottingham.

Lighting is designed by David W Kidd and sound by Chris Bogg

With comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and perennial favourite Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,  Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles.  Don’t be a knight who says ‘No’ ….
