PREPARE for some side-splitting entertainment with Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Koorliny Arts Centre for the next few weeks.
Directed by Jethro Pidd, the final production in the Koorliny Arts Centre and Kwinana Industries Council 2016 Performance Season is the Tony-award winning musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture Monty Python and the The Holy Grail.
Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and their quest to find the Holy Grail.
The musical diverts from more traditional versions of the legend and features shenanigans, including a line of beautiful dancing girls, flatulent Frenchmen and killer rabbits.
Outside, there is plague with a 50 per cent chance of pestilence and famine.
Throughout the show, Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedivere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad.
Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchmen, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni!
Pidd said the production would appeal to “anyone with a sense of humour, Monty Python fans and anyone who likes the smell of cats”.
