Join King Arthur on the quest for the Grail

Funnier than the Black Death!  Spamalot transfers from its critically acclaimed run in Colchester and will be embarking on a UK tour for 2017/2018.

Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this spammier than ever production is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen. Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.

Spamalot was the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, while it enjoyed a victorious West End run. This hilarious show is written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years. The funny man also wrote the score alongside John DuPrez, famous for his work on Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life amongst a host of other big-name scores.

The new tour is produced by the award-winning Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester.  Selladoor’s recent tours include Footloose, American Idiot, Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors.

Comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and everyone’s favourite Always Look On the Bright Side Of Life, will have you up from your seat singing and dancing along! So don’t be a knight that say ‘Ni’ get your coconuts and gallop down to Buxton Opera House!

Spamalot is here 16-20 January. Tickets are priced at £24-£35. Discounts are available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit:
