As show week is approaching, and the last minute preparations are in action, we take a visit to the Yeovil College rehearsal space to see what work will need to be done technically and what lighting will need to be included for the show.
There’s a really lovely atmosphere around the college at the moment. The set is being built and the costumes are being collected and the cast have just completed a full run through of all of the songs. The songs were performed to a high standard lead by Kat Stevens the MD, and the dancing is full of energy which is choreographed by Aimee Barlow.
The show is put on by students of Yeovil Collage and will be performed for 3 nights at the Octagon. Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways.
Spamalot runs at the Octagon Theatre from WEDNESDAY 15 MAY – FRIDAY 17 MAY. To book tickets call the Box Office on 01935 422844 or visit http://www.octagon-theatre.co.uk/
