Spamalot to Close in Melbourne

The Melbourne season of Monty Python’s Spamalot will conclude on Saturday, April 5 after a five-month season at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The musical, "lovingly ripped-off" from the classic film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, opened to critical acclaim, commenced performances in November 2007 and has delighted audiences since then. The show was recently honoured with 9 nominations for the 2007 Green Room Awards - the most nominations for a single show in the musical theatre categories.

Australian Producer, Michael Coppel, has said that "We're very proud of the Australian production, which will have been seen by over 150,000 people when it closes in Melbourne".
 
"The Australian production of Spamalot has been lauded as one of the best mounted anywhere in the world. The Melbourne season has drawn both critical raves and fantastic audience responses, and we look forward to the opportunity of presenting it around Australia."
 
Touring options are being considered with announcements to follow.
 
Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT features a chorus line of dancing divas and knights, flatulent Frenchmen, a killer rabbit and one legless knight.
 
Directed by Mike Nichols, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT features a book and lyrics by Eric Idle, music by John Du Prez and Idle, and choreography by Casey Nicholaw.
