John Du Prez

John Du Prez, a Trevelyan Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford, and Associate of the Royal College of Music, entered the film industry in 1978 composing additional music for MONTY PYTHON’S LIFE OF BRIAN. This began a long association with Eric Idle, leading eventually to their current writing partnership. He has scored more than 20 feature films including THE MEANING OF LIFE, A PRIVATE FUNCTION, A FISH CALLED WANDA, ONCE BITTEN, UHF and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES I, II AND III. Other Python projects include the CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION ALBUM, MONTY PYTHON AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL and THE FAIRLY INCOMPLETE & RATHER BADLY ILLUSTRATED MONTY PYTHON SONG BOOK. He was musical director for Eric Idle’s two North American stage tours, Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python (2000) and The Greedy Bastard Tour (2003). This is his Broadway debut.
