DIRECT from the West End, Monty Python's Spamalot, the hit musical based on the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, visits the Theatre Royal Bath next week.
The cast is led by comedian and actor Marcus Brigstocke, Amy Nuttall, well-known for playing Chloe in Emmerdale, and Todd Carty, famous for his leading roles in Grange Hill, EastEnders and The Bill.
Audiences all around the world have been roaring with laughter since Monty Python’s Spamalot won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005.
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, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people.
The show features fantastic tunes which are catchier than the plague including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the nation’s favourite comedy song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
The role of Arthur, King of the Britons, will be played by Marcus Brigstocke. Comedian, writer and actor, Marcus performs stand-up nationally to sell out audiences both on tour and on the comedy circuit.
Amy Nuttall stars as the Lady of the Lake.
She played the role of Chloe in Emmerdale for five years and recently appeared as Melanie in BBC1’s Hotel Babylon.
Todd Carty appears as Patsy, King Arthur’s trusty servant in Spamalot.
Todd is perhaps best known for his role as Mark Fowler in BBC1’s award-winning flagship drama series EastEnders, a role he played for 12 years.
Spamalot runs at the Theatre Royal Bath from Monday to November 20.
