Marcus Brigstocke, Jodie Prenger, et al. to Star in SPAMALOT UK Tour

SPAMALOT-Tour-20010101

Full star casting is announced (sound the trumpets!) for Spamalot's cracking four-week Christmas season at Theatre Royal Brighton beginning on December 15, 2011; Marcus Brigstocke triumphantly returns as Arthur, King of the Britons; Nancy, sorry, Jodie Prenger, reprises her role as the Lady of The Lake; and Todd Carty, is back again (there's no getting rid of him it seems) on coconuts as Patsy.

Spamalot will canter out on a UK tour from January 16, 2012 (oh yes we tour-a-lot!) beginning in Brighton and touring to Liverpool, Oxford, Grimsby, Woking, Torquay, York, Stoke, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Richmond, Aylesbury, Sunderland, Bristol, Bromley, Cambridge, Truro and Manchester.

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez. Following a staggeringly successful (yes, we staggered) UK tour in 2010, the production will begin a new national tour with a four-week Christmas season in ye old Brighton this Christmas.

The Brighton season reunites Marcus Brigstocke, Jodie Prenger and Todd Carty from the original national cast. The full company includes; Robin Armstrong as Sir Bedevere, Rob Delaney as Sir Robin, Adam Ellis as Prince Herbert, Graham MacDuff as Sir Lancelot and Jon Robyns as Sir Galahad, along with Amelia Adams Pearce, Tim Bonser, Michael Burgen, Rachel Knowles, Kit Orton, Hannah Malekzad, James Nelson and Niall Sheehy. Spamalot is directed by Christopher Luscombe and features Eric Idle himself as God.

Audiences all around the world have been roaring with laughter since Monty Python¡¦s Spamalot won the Tony Award for Best Musical. 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, witch burnings (cancelled - health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation¡¦s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader¡¦s Digest Poll 2010) Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.

The original UK and Ireland production began in May 2010 and was seen by more than 300,000 people over 50 weeks. During that time there were seven onstage moustache incidents, one
suspected case of swine flu (French pigs!), one outbreak of nits and 36 pairs of coconuts used (That Todd Carty is stronger then he looks!). The cast looked ¡§Looked on the Bright Side of Life¡¨ a staggering 791 times in more than 378 performances (and they still don¡¦t know the words!).
