Sarah Earnshaw will reprise her performance as The Lady of the Lake in the 2015 UK Tour of Spamalot. She replaces the previously announced Bonnie Langford who will continue to star in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Earnshaw, whose West End credits include Wicked and Scrooge, joins Joe Pasquale as King Arthur and Todd Carty as Patsy. The tour opens on 15th January 2015 at the Manchester Opera House. Earnshaw, Pasquale and Carty are confirmed to appear until 14th March 2015 at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking.
The cast also includes Will Hawksworth as Sir Robin, Richard Kent as Prince Herbert, Richard Meek as Sir Galahad, Josh Wilmott as Sir Bedevere, Jamie Tyler as Sir Lancelot, Daniel Cane, Abigail Climer, Matthew Dale and Holly Easterbrook. Inez Mackenzie, Ste Clough and Richard Astbury complete the cast as swings.
Lovingly ripped off from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot follows King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in their quest to find the Holy Grail. Spamalot originally ran in the West End at the Palace Theatre between 2006 and 2009.
Following its first UK Tour, a new production of the musical opened at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre in July 2012 before transferring to the Playhouse Theatre from November 2012 where it ran until April 2014.
