Monty Python’s SPAMalot – Craig Wellington Productions; The Tasmainain Theatre Unit Trust

Monty Python’s ‘Spamalot’ is a musical “lovingly” ripped off from the motion picture: Monty Python and The Holy Grail. The show has prized as being absolutely hilarious and under the direction of Andrew Casey it was no exception.

The play in its entirety goes for a little over 2 hours with an intermission and you are kept laughing throughout. Monty Python’s quick, sharp humour keeps you reliving some of the best parts from the films and television series. From a killer rabbit to a Trojan Rabbit, everything that could be thrown in was.

The choreography in the production was marvellous, with a few complicated looking dance routines and the singing was of an equally high quality. The whole ensemble worked together to pull the show together in a flawless manner. Nicole Simms graced the stage with an awe-striking performance as ‘The Lady of the Lake.’ Ivano Del Pio held a very comical interpretation of the beloved, Patsy and a charismatic and entertaining performance from Connor Sweeny as multiple characters, including Prince Herbert.

The show is very comical but would be aided if you have a sound knowledge of Monty Python’s material from the past. The show is definitely worth seeing and is running from 6th-16th at the Theatre Royal.
