Jodie Prenger in Spamalot at the Playhouse Theatre
The I’d Do Anything Winner Joining the Cast for the Final Two Weeks of the Show in the West End
Monty Python’s Spamalot is due to end its current run in the West End on Saturday 12th April 2014 and London theatre Guide has announced that Jodie Prenger will be joining the cast for this final stretch of performances. Audiences will remember Prenger for her work in the West End revival of Oliver at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and her presence is likely to incite curiosity in theatregoer during these final weeks at the Playhouse Theatre.
Prenger appeared on The Talent show I’d Do Anything in 2008 and as a result won a role in the revival of Oliver The Musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. She has since used this jumping-off point to appear in other stage production and on television screens. She appeared as The Lady of the Lake (the same role she inhabits at the Playhouse Theatre) in Spamalot on a UK Tour, One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Calamity Jane at the Watermill Theatre. Her television work has include Waterloo Road, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Wizards Vs Aliens, Hustle and Candy Cabs, among others.
Spamalot is based on the Monty Python movie Monty Python And The Holy Grail and sees Arthur’s Knights head off in search of the mythical relic. Along the way they meet many colourful people, from the Knights Who Say Ni to the Killer Rabbit. It was a popular movie on it release and one that is forever quoted to this day, which is something that has translated well with this stage version.
The production also features musical numbers like The Song That Goes Like This, Find Your Grail, Brave Sir Robin and the classic piece from Monty Python’s Life Of Brian, Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
Spamalot ends this month and it is followed by the production of 1984 that has been seen in regional theatres around the country. The anticipated adaptation of George Orwell’s novel opens on Thursday 8th May 2014 (previews from Monday 28th April 2014).
Meanwhile, audiences can see Jodie Prenger in Monty Python’s Spamalot until Saturday 12th April 2014.
