Selladoor productions has confirmed that it will be touring Monty Python’s Spamalot in a brand new UK tour, which will open later this year.
Following its run in Colchester and based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot will return to stages across the UK in a new tour which will open on the 11th September 2017 at Blackpool Opera House.
Filled with misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen, Spamalot invites audiences to join with King Arthur as he attempts to locate the illusive Holy Grail with the help of his hapless knights.
Winner of the 2005 Tony award for Best New Musical, Spamalot is written by Eric Idle, the Python legend who has been entertaining the British public for the last 50 years. He also wrote the score for the musical alongside John DuPrez, known for his work on Monty Python’s Meaning of Life as well as a number of other big name scores.
This new production of the musical is directed by Daniel Buckroyd,designed by Sara Perks and produced by Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester. Lighting is designed by David W Kidd and sound by Chris Bogg.
Spamalot features classic songs such as 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 and laughing their socks off.
