Following its sell-out run in Sydney in 2019`, Monty Python’s Spamalot is coming to the Gold Coast at HOTA this March 5 to 7 2020, on the only Queensland stop of its 2020 tour.
Directed by Richard Carroll and choreographed by Cameron Mitchell, this hilarious classic musical which is lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
Audiences can expect the unexpected as a diverse, cross-gender cast of heroic yet foolish actors battle their way past various cows, killer rabbits and French people, in pursuit of claiming the legendary Grail.
HOTA CEO, Criena Gehrke, believes Monty Python’s Spamalot will amuse even the toughest of critics.
“I’ve always loved the Python’s blatant disregard for the rules and the way they just always seem to be having so much fun. There’s no doubt their influence is still felt today and Spamalot is truly vintage Python in all its side-splitting glory,” said Criena.
With HOTA focused on presenting high quality entertainment from around the country, this hilarious cast of talented performers embrace the satirical, home-made spirit of the original movie and the Monty Python TV series with their anarchic, immersive style of storytelling.
A smash hit in both New York and London, as well as winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot redefines the word ‘epic’ and will be one not to miss during its limited Gold Coast run.
Monty Python’s Spamalot will take place in the HOTA Theatre for three days only, from Thursday 5th to Saturday 7th March 2020.
