"A sharp, smart, scintillating production, guaranteed to help everyone look on the bright side."
— The Reviews Hub

A Made in Colchester production

Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen.

We join King Arthur as he travels around the land gathering his Knights of the Round Table. This band of hapless adventurers is then tasked with a divine mission to locate the elusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences. With comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and perennial favourite Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles.

Spamalot was the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, while it enjoyed a victorious West End run. This hilarious show was written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years. The funnyman also wrote the score alongside John Du Prez, who is famous for his work on Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life amongst a host of other big-name scores.

Tickets are now available for the Spamalot Backstage Tour and Touch Tour.

We recently chatted to our splendid Spamalot designer Sara Perks and costume supervisor Corinna Vincent about the fabulous costumes you’ll see on stage, read all about it here!

"Make sure you beat a swift path to the door of the Mercury for one of the craziest, wittiest shows of recent years."
— East Anglian Daily Times
"A sharp, smart, scintillating production, guaranteed to help everyone look on the bright side."
— The Reviews Hub
"A proper gag fest of individual comedy moments that leave you with aching sides, but a smile on your face."
— Colchester Gazette
"I was so entertained and challenge anyone to go see the show and not feel the same."
— TheatreLife
"Do not think that this is some regional poor relation of a West End show. Everything, including set, costume, and sound are spot on. This is a first class production which deserves to play to full houses every night."
— Grapevine LIVE
"This is a very good production of a very silly musical."
— LondonTheatre1
