The Company of Four will be performing Spamalot at the Regent Theatre in Ipswich on October 21st & 22nd.
Spamalot is the Monty Python musical that has been “lovingly ripped off” from the acclaimed 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail. The quest lead the troupe to a French castle, into the dangerous clutches of the Black Knight and a loathsome bunny rabbit, to a rendezvous with the knights that say knee, and into an intimate liaison with the Lady of the Lake.
Unlike the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is jam-packed with silly songs to match the action. The opening number “Finland”/ “Fisch Schlapping Dance” was created especially for the show along with other original songs such as “I Am Not Dead Yet,” “The Song that Goes Like This,” and “The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part.” The show also includes the song originally made famous by Monty Python in The Life of Brian, “Always Look in the Bright Side of Life” which is always a crowd pleaser!
Spamalot is all singing, all dancing silliness; it is rather like an adult pantomime! The show pokes fun at theatre whilst reveling in the gaiety of live performance.
Spamalot appeals to Monty Python fans as well as people who just like a fun show and a good night out.
Note: This show is suitable for all ages. However under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
