Spamalot cast update at Playhouse Theatre
Dick and Dom have been cast in Monty Python's Spamalot at The Playhouse Theatre. This will mark their debut in a West End theatre musical.
From 2 Dec 2013 to 4 Jan 2014 Dick plays 'King Arthur'and Dom plays 'Patsy'. Carley Stenson joined the cast as 'The Lady of The Lake' on 4 Nov 2013 and will continue until 8 Feb 2014.
Dick and Dom, have appeared in a variety of TV shows including BBC1's Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow, and also starred in Horrid Henry: The Movie.
Dick (Richard McCourt) said; "I’ve always been a huge fan of all things Monty Python and so am very excited about the fact that I’m getting the chance to prove myself as King Arthur and take hold of the mighty Excalibuer." Dom (Dominic Wood) said; “I have my dad and older brothers to thank for bringing me up on Python. We watched it as much as watching Kids TV, so singing Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life on stage will be a career highlight! It’s also the first time in the west end for us, so... 'Now for something completely different'.”
Carley Stenson has appeared in Channel 4's Hollyoaks as well as on the stage in Legally Blonde and Shrek The Musical. Carley Stenson said; “I’ve always enjoyed performing on the West End stage and I’m very much looking forward to joining the Spamalot cast and being part of such a much loved production.”
Monty Python's Spamalot, which returned to the West End, opening at the Playhouse Theatre, on 20 Nov 2012, following previews 14 Nov 2012, is currently taking bookings to 8 Feb 2014.
Monty Python's Spamalot is "lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Book by Eric Idle, score by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
"Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust) Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life."
