March 6th - March 10th
Funnier than the black death!
Lovingly ripped off 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. 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.
Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical the hilarious Spamalot was written by Python legend Eric Idle, with a fantastic score co-written by John DuPrez including Always Bright Side of Life.
Produced by the award winning Selladoor Productions – producers of Footloose, American Idiot, Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors and Mercury Theatre Colchester, this brand new even SPAMMIER UK tour of Spamalot will have audiences rolling in the aisles.
Ticket price includes a £1 contribution to our heritage fund.
The performance at 2:30pm on Wednesday 11th April will be audio described.
Audio description is a live verbal commentary that provides information on the visual aspects of a production as it unfolds. Descriptions of the sets, costumes, props, the actors’ facial expressions and body language, fit around dialogue and music to complete the picture for visually impaired people – who listen to it using a headset.
There will also be a Touch Tour at 1:30pm on Wednesday 11th April.
This is an opportunity for blind and partially sighted theatre goers to go on-stage and familiarise themselves with the set, costumes, props and to meet cast members to begin associating voices with characters.
