Monty Python’s Spamalot

Date: 29 Jan 2019

From One-Eyed Man Productions, the brains behind Calamity Jane, comes the Sydney premiere of Spamalot, the musical adaptation of the classic British film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Spamalot re-tells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, who, guided by the fabulous belting diva The Lady of the Lake, battle their way past cows, killer rabbits, and the snotty French to claim the legendary Grail.

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT was a smash hit in both New York and London, and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Here, a diverse, cross-gender cast of heroic/foolish actors (and their assistant stage manager) embrace the satirical, home-made spirit of the original movie and the Monty Python TV series, enlisting the help of some carefully-chosen backdrops, a CD player, and – when all else fails – a large dose of meta-theatrical humour.

Marty Alix, Blake Appelqvist, Cramer Cain, Rob Johnson, Josie Lane, Aaron Tsindos, Jane Watt and Megan Wilding feature. Richard Carroll directs.
