ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE AS CURTAIN CALL PRODUCTIONS BRING SPAMALOT TO CREWE LYCEUM THIS MAY!
Following their hugely successful productions of Grease, Hairspray and Sister Act, Curtain Call Productions return to Crewe Lyceum from Wednesday 10 – Saturday 13 May to present Monty Python’s Spamalot.
Curtain Call Productions was set up in 2009 by Joel Montague, Gail Montague and Malcolm Forbes-Peckham and the infamous Biritsh actress Sheridan Smith is the patron of the company. Regularly performing shows at the Crewe Lyceum for seven years, the company was created to enhance and nurture local talent with a vision to perform top notch productions in Cheshire. They have raised over £30,000 for a variety of charities primarily Cancer Research. Joel Montague, the director of the company is a West End actor who has starred in shows such as School of Rock, Funny Girl and Billy Elliot. He is accompanied by the company’s Musical Director Malcolm Forbes-Peckham who works consistently at The National Theatre and is currently working on An American in Paris in the West End.
Inspired by the classic comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin; Spamalot follows the journey of King Arthur and his knights on their sacred quest to find the Holy Grail. Written by Eric Idle, with a fantastic score co-written by John DuPrez, the musical earned the Tony Award for Best New Musical in 2005.
Featuring a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, misfit knights, cows, killer rabbits and French people, the show features the hilarious songs 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 2009) Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life. Python fans will be delighted by the inclusion of unforgettable characters from the 1975 film, including the Knights Who Say Ni and the Black Knight, whilst the uplifting music, side-splittingly funny script and fabulous costumes promise to charm all who watch.
Simon Porter as King Arthur and West End actress Jodie Jacobs as the Lady of the Lake lead the 45-strong company of seasoned amateur performers as they perform the most infectiously funny musical of the millennium.
Spamalot plays at Crewe Lyceum from Wednesday 10 – Saturday 13 May at 7:30 PM, with a Saturday Matinee at 2:30 PM. Book tickets via the Box Office on 01270 368242 or online at crewelyceum.co.uk.
