Bonnie Langford will return to the role of the Lady of the Lake in Monty Python’s Spamalot next month.
The actress, who played the soggy songstress in the comedy musical’s 2012 run at the Harold Pinter theatre, will return to the production from 6 May, following the recent addition of another cast member, Steven Pacey, who has taken on the role of King Arthur for an initial four-week run this month.
Currently appearing in Dolly Parton-penned musical 9 To 5, Langford, who began her successful career at a young age in children’s television series Just William, has since appeared in numerous stage productions including Chicago, Guys And Dolls, Gypsy, Me And My Girl, Peter Pan – The Musical and the original production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. She is also well known for her on screen role in Doctor Who and as a finalist in the 2006 series of ITV’s Dancing On Ice.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film Monty Python And The Holy Grail, Monty Python’s Spamalot tells the shamefully silly story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they journey through England in search of the holy grail.
Featuring insulting Frenchmen, inventive use of coconuts, a homicidal rabbit and the well-known song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life, the show is booking at the Playhouse theatre to 2 November.
