AFTER a three-year stint in the West End, Monty Python’s Spamalot is set to come to the Regent Theatre next year.

The latest run of the performance, which will visit the Regent between Monday, March 23 and Saturday, March 28, is directed by Christopher Luscombe, whose previous credits include “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Travels with my Aunt” and follows on from a successful 10-night sell-out Monty Python Reunion at The 02, London.

The show features an entirely new score created by Python veterans Eric Idle and John Du Perez, but still includes old favourites such as “He Is Not Dead Yet”, “Find Your Grail” and of course “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life”.

Viewers have been told to expect show girls, witch burnings, cows and killer rabbits.

Idle said: “Spamalot is fun. The new production is funnier, it’s more like a Python show.

"There are new costumes and new sets and a new director, so it’s just got a whole different spirit to it.”

In previous years the show has won a number of awards including three Tony Awards and a Grammy for “Best Musical Show Album”.

Based on the film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” Spamalot is a musical comedy which tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and their Quest for the Holy Grail.

Tickets are available from The Regent Theatre Box Office, by calling 0844 8717649 or visiting www.atgtickets/com/stoke
