Audiences in Manchester will be looking on the bright side of life when the brand new production of Spamalot comes to the Palace Theatre in five weeks.
This new show from Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester promises to delight fans of the classic comedy.
As part of its UK Tour for 2017/2018, Spamalot comes to the Manchester Palace Theatre from Tuesday 7 November to Saturday 11 November 2017.
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.
Comic tunes include 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.
Tickets start from £21.40.
