What’s on in Manchester: Spamalot at the Opera House Manchester.
From Thursday 15th January 2015 – until Saturday 24th January 2015
Tickets from £10.50
Matinee and Evening Performances Available
Monty Python’s Spamalot gallops back out on tour to bring the West End production to theatres across the land (to the sound of banging coconut shells) as Joe Pasquale (The Producers, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here) reprises his much-loved role of King Arthur alongside Todd Carty (Grange Hill, Eastenders, The Bill, Dancing On Ice) as Patsy.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 – before it went bust), Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
The latest tour, which is directed by Christopher Luscombe, follows hot on the heels of the can’t-believe-how-successful-it-was-with-the-first-show-selling-out-in-40-seconds 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 – the world sang along, and Spamalot audiences get the opportunity to do so too! During the run, there have been 21 onstage moustache incidents, three suspected cases of swine flu (French pigs!), two outbreaks of nits and 92 pairs of coconuts used.
