Dick and Dom are cast in Monty Python’s Spamalot at The Playhouse Theatre. This will be their debut in a West End musical.
From 2nd December 2013 to 4th January 2014 Dick plays ‘King Arthur’and Dom plays ‘Patsy’. Carley Stenson joined the cast as ‘The Lady of The Lake’ from 4th November 2013 and will play the role until 8th February 2014.
Dick and Dom, have appeared in a number of TV shows including BBC1’s Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow, and 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’s stage roles include starring as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical, as well as starring as Steph Cunningham in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks before her highly successful stage roles. Speaking exclusively to us today Carley said; “I was attracted by the humour and fun that Spamalot promotes . I love Monty Python! Lady of The Lake is a great role with fantastic songs, comedy and gorgeous costumes. I can not wait to be comfortable in the role and enjoy the moments especially Diva Lament!”
Audiences from around the world have for many years enjoyed watching Monty Python’s Spamalot, by Eric Idle and John Du Prez, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2005.
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the (very) Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled as considered to be far too expensive) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features the hilarious songs He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course one of the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song Always Look On the Bright Side of Life.
Don’t miss your night out with the Knights of The Round Table at the most brilliantly funny musical of the new millennium.
