Henley Amateur Operatic Dramatic Society, now in its 95th year performs SPAMALOT, a new musical lovingly ripped off from the motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail at the Kenton Theatre between 16-19 November.
The show retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?
James Gwynne who has been a member of HAODS for years is playing Sir Galahad. He said, “The live version of SPAMALOT is fantastic – it follows the framework of the film but isn’t the same. Some scenes are in the play but not in the film and vice versa. The music is great as well, all the songs are by Eric Idle so they definitely keep the Python feel but give an exciting new aspect that isn’t in the film. Spamalot is a light hearted show, and musicals are always infectious and entertaining. The cast are all having a lot of fun, which I am sure will transfer to the audience!”
