Monty Python's Spamalot
16 - 20 May 2017

Director and choreographer: Gary J. Myers
Musical director: Neil Streeter

The Haymarket, Basingstoke
Evenings: 7:30 pm, Saturday matinee: 2:30 pm

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

With beautiful show girls, some cows, killer rabbits and French people, Spamalot has something for everyone (did we mention the beautiful show girls?)

This multi-award-winning musical features tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including Find Your Grail, The Song That Goes Like This and the nation's favourite comedy song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.

From the pen of Monty Python's Eric Idle, Spamalot is an uproarious homage to the world of musical theatre and celebrates a very British brand of humour.

Audience Feedback

Absolutely brilliant! I cannot believe the cast are amateurs. Well done to everyone involved.
— Sandra Paddon
Thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. My first BATS experience, wasn’t sure what to expect, but really impressed with the enthusiasm and energy of the cast.
— Steve Hawker
Just wanted to add, at the end, that your production blew the rather “modest” touring version right out of the water!
— Mark Ponsford
Every cast member was brilliant. I’ve not cried with laughter as much as I did tonight in years and years.
— Amanda Marriott
