King Arthur's knights ride into town as SOS bring Spamalot to Redditch

Correspondent 22nd Apr, 2019

STUDLEY Operatic Society are proud to present Monty Python’s Spamalot, a premiere performance for Redditch Palace Theatre from Tuesday April 30 to Saturday, May 4.

With a cast of over 40, led by a stellar principal line-up, you don’t have to be a Monty Python fan to appreciate and enjoy this hilarious show.

Based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), Spamalot was adapted for the stage and follows the journey of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in their search for the grail whilst adding some of the best bits of all of the Monty Python films including household favourite “Always look on the bright side of life.”

The audience will not only discover how all of Arthur’s Knights became so, you’ll also meet the Lady of the Lake, a castle full of farting Frenchmen, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the limbless Black Knight, a killer rabbit and the Knights who say Ni.

Written by Eric Idle, who spent some of his younger years living in Studley and the surrounding area, Spamalot is full to brimming with jokes and one-liners just like its predecessor.

However, the music, singing, dancing and lavish costumes sets it apart from traditional Python making it enjoyable for anyone who loves a night out at the theatre – although be warned it does contain adult language and humour.

In addition Eric has also been in touch with the group via social media to show his support and pride that the show is being performed in the local area.

Spamalot is an evening of all singing, all dancing silliness set in the time of King Arthur and Camelot. You can be sure it’ll be a ‘Knight’ to remember!!

We also invite you to come in costume on the Friday night if you wish.
