Monty Python's Spamalot takes to the stage

Published Tuesday, 16 May 2017

The multi award-winning Coventry Musical Theatre Society proudly presents Monty Python’s Spamalot next week.

Lovingly adapted from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Spamalot is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen.

This production includes our very own Adrian Laing, an Electrician in the Place Directorate and Kevin Coughlan, a Performance Manager in Education.  

Ady promises to add some “spark” as one of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table, while Kevin in his roles as historian and singing minstrel guarantees a “data free” night filled with colour and Python humour.

The play joins King Arthur as he travels around the land gathering his Knights of the Round Table. This band of hapless adventurers is then tasked with a divine mission to locate the elusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.

With comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and perennial favourite Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles.

This hilarious show was written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years. The funnyman also wrote the score alongside John Du Prez, who is famous for his work on Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life amongst a host of other big-name scores.

It will be staged at the Belgrade Theatre from Thursday 25 – Saturday 27 May, with evening performances at 7.30pm and matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets, priced from £14.70, are available from the Box Office on 024 7655 3055 or the website.
