Upcoming Events

Monty Python’s Spamalot

1st – 5th May 2018 | Theatre By The Lake 


The legendary and outrageous tale Spamalot – a musical lovingly ripped off from the 1975 motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail – is clip-clopping into Theatre by the Lake’s Main House from 1 – 5 May.

It tells the tale of Arthur, King of the Britons, and his hapless Knights of the Round Table on their quest to find the Holy Grail and features a whole host of mad-cap characters, a fantastic score and hilarious songs that will all make for a gloriously silly evening.

Audiences will be snorting and sniggering to classic Python humour as tap-dancing knights, a killer rabbit, can-can girls, rude Frenchmen and peasants who know their constitutional rights, become entwined in Arthur’s quest.

Musically, the score is full to the brim with familiar songs parodying hit West End shows – from Phantom of the Opera to Fiddler on the Roof – as well as the famously cheery number, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Being written by Python legend Eric Idle with the score by John Du Prez, it’s no surprise the musical won the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical.

Spamalot is the 45th year a stage show has been presented by KAOS, performed in the professional setting of Theatre by the Lake’s Main House, our local talent is put centre stage and last year Cumbria Live praised our hit show Chess as a “polished, seemingly-effortless performance”.
