6th March 2018 - 10th March 2018


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 7th March 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 7th March.

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.

    It's not often that a coconut plays a crucial role in a show but then not every show is Spamalot, the musical "lovingly ripped off from the motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

    Whereas previous touring versions have had big stars such as Matthew Kelly, Bonnie Langford , Jodie Prenger and, of course, Todd Carty as the downtrodden but irrepressible Patsy, this production lacks the well-known names but makes up for it big time by the sheer exuberance of the talented cast who, even after many months on the road taking the show around the UK, are still obviously thoroughly enjoying the experience of bringing it to new audiences. Which is important, as you mess with Spamalot at your peril…

    This deliberately silly saga offers an alternative take on the Camelot story – myth or reality – to an enthusiastic Malvern audience (some of whom probably already know it line by line...). Here, Bob Harms plays King Arthur - a king without a horse, just a coconut - and is in fine voice, as is Sarah Harlington as the Lady of the Lake who can really belt out a song when she needs to, especially when complaining in Act 2 that she has been off stage for rather too long... But is the pairing of Arthur and his coconut-wielding sidekick Patsy, a key role superbly played here by Rhys Owen, which works so well, nowhere more so than in the response to Arthur's lament that he is “all alone”. Poor Patsy – this had the audience in stiches and you really feel for him!

    Elements of panto creep in - the script is updated with references to Malvern and Donald Trump, and it contains the funny fight and dismemberment scene - whilst Python fans will be happy that their usual nonsense is there (the big foot and the big hand descending from the sky along with the booming voice of God, the killer bunny rabbit and the tribe called The Knights who say "Ni!" (who subsequently become The Knights who say "Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptang Zoo Boing!" followed by a lot more seemingly random words, much the amusement of King Arthur who has to repeat them!). There is also the “I’m not dead yet” section and, of course, the show is most famous for imploring millions to look on the bright side of life (giving the audience the chance to partake in a singalong, as this was also Finale to the show).

    You don't have to be a fan of Monty Python to enjoy the show (though it probably helps), just a lover of expertly-constructed nonsensical scripts and acting and fine musicianship which comes from the live band led by musical director Dean McDermott.

    There may be an absence of “names” in this production but no matter. This is a gloriously funny version of the long-running show which never seems to run out of steam, however many times you see it. One thing is certain - It’s not dead yet - far from it!

    And for one lucky audience member, 5 minutes of fame on stage too…

    This show is a MUST to see. My wife & I never stopped laughing from the moment the performance started until after the cast took their final bows. Well done to every one involved you were all perfect.

  • Peter

    A most memorable afternoon of wonderful entertainment and gut busting laughter. All the cast were magnificent, congratulations to them all.

  • Val

    What a great cast and production. We really enjoyed Spamalot.

  • Caroline

    An absolute delight from the opening song to the final bow and beyond! Relived the slap stick and surprise of childhood pantomimes but with non offensive adult humour, hilarious local references and a smattering if history!Grinning from ear to ear and can’t stop singing!!!!
