MONTY Python’s Spamalot will visit the Regent Theatre next year as part of a national tour.
Following the Pythons’ 10-night sell-out run at London’s O2 Arena, Monty Python’s Spamalot will visit Staffordshire as part of a national tour.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot has a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
The latest tour, directed by Christopher Luscombe, follows hot on the heels of the Monty Python Reunion at The O2 and Eric Idle’s acclaimed performance of Always Look On The Bright Side of Life at the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony.
Eric Idle said: “Spamalot is fun. The new production is funnier, it’s more like a Python show.
“There are new costumes and new sets and a new director, so it’s just got a whole different spirit to it.”
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features fantastic tunes, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
Tickets for the show, which opens for six nights on Monday, March 23, are now on sale and are available in person from The Regent Theatre box office, by calling 0844 871 7649 or visiting www.atgtickets/com/stoke.
