AUDIENCES will be able to look on the bright side of life at South Hill Park next month.

East Berkshire Operatic Society (EBOS) will be bringing Monty Python's Spamalot to the Wilde Theatre stage in Bracknell between May 15 and 19.

Based on one of the UK's most beloved films, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the outrageous musical features all the best-loved quotes, slapstick and laughs from the original.

Despite being produced nearly 30 years after the film, the musical parody of King Arthur's search for the Holy Grail still delights audiences across the world, having been seen by more than two million people in its initial run.

God commands Arthur to find the fabled Grail, and with his trusty (if not a little useless) servant Patsy behind him, they set off on their quest, recruiting Knights along the way to assist on their quest.

The team behind the original Monty Python group were made up of comedy legends such as Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. With Spamalot being written by Eric Idle himself, you already know that the results will be outstanding.

Director Julian Hirst said: “I am delighted to be directing the always excellent EBOS in this very funny show. To be honest, I was never really a fan of the TV series but Eric Idle has written a silly but spectacular show which, along with some very hummable tunes, features classic British humour at its best and fully embraces the concept of theatre as a form of escapism.

"Who knew that the Arthurian legend could be so fun? We are delighted to bring this production to life and hope to see all of Bracknell and beyond joining in the fun."

Spamalot will be performed at the Wilde Theatre, South Hill Park, from Tuesday, May 15 to Saturday, May 19 at 7.45pm, with a Saturday matinée at 2.30pm.

Tickets start at £17.50, concession and group rates are available. To book call the Box Office on 01344 484 123.
