Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including "Best Musical," and received 14 Tony Award nominations.


Act I

The play begins with a historian giving a brief overview of medieval England. An idyllic Scandinavian village appears, with gaily dressed Finnish villagers singing and dancing to the "Fisch Schlapping Song." The Historian returns, irritated, and tells them he said "England", not Finland. The villagers disperse and the pastoral forest is immediately replaced by a dreary, dark village with penitent monks in hooded robes chanting Latin prayers and hitting themselves in the face with wooden boards. King Arthur travels the land with his servant Patsy ("King Arthur's Song"), trying to recruit Knights of the Round Table to join him in Camelot and his quest for the Holy Grail. He encounters various strange people, including a pair of sentries who are more interested in debating whether two swallows could successfully carry a coconut than in guarding their castles. Sir Robin and Sir Lancelot meet as they attempt to dispose of the sickly Not Dead Fred ("He Is Not Dead Yet"). They agree to become Knights of the Round Table together.

Meanwhile, Arthur attempts to convince a peasant named Dennis Galahad that he (Arthur) is king of England because the Lady of the Lake gave him Excalibur, the sword given only to the man fit to rule England. However, Dennis and his mother, Mrs. Galahad, are political radicals and deny that any king who has not been elected by the people has any legitimate right to rule over them. To settle the issue, Arthur has the Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls appear to turn Dennis into a knight ("Come With Me"). Cheered on by the girls ("Laker Girls Cheer"), the Lady of the Lake turns Dennis into Sir Galahad and together, they sing a generic Broadway love song ("The Song That Goes Like This"). Together, with Sir Bedevere and Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Show (a knight resembling Don Quixote who promptly apologizes and then leaves), they make up the Knights of the Round Table ("All for One").

The five knights gather in Camelot, a deliberately anachronistic place resembling Las Vegas's Camelot-inspired Excalibur resort, complete with showgirls and oversized dice ("Knights of the Round Table" / "The Song That Goes Like This (Reprise)"). In the midst of their revelry, they are contacted by God (voiced by John Cleese) who tells them to locate the Holy Grail. Urged on by the Lady of the Lake ("Find Your Grail"), the Knights set off. They are viciously taunted by lewd French soldiers at a castle they come to, and attempt to retaliate by sending them a large wooden rabbit in the style of the Trojan Horse; however, they realize after the fact that it was not as simple as leaving the rabbit and walking away - they were supposed to be inside of it. Defeated, they leave in a hurry when the French begin throwing various barnyard animals - including cows - at them ("Run Away").

Act II

Sir Robin and his minstrels follow King Arthur and Patsy into a "dark and very expensive forest" where they are separated. King Arthur meets the Knights who say Ni, who demand a shrubbery. King Arthur despairs of finding one, but Patsy cheers him up ("Always Look on the Bright Side of Life") and they find a shrubbery shortly after. The Knights accept it, but next demand that King Arthur put on a musical and bring it to Broadway.

The Black Knight appears but King Arthur more or less defeats him by cutting off both his arms and legs, impaling his still-alive torso on a door, and leaving to find Sir Robin. Sir Robin, after wandering the forest for some time ("Brave Sir Robin"), finds King Arthur and insists that it would be impossible for them to accomplish this next task ("You Won't Succeed on Broadway"). King Arthur and Patsy promptly set off in search of Jews. While the Lady of the Lake laments her lack of stage time ("The Diva's Lament"), Sir Lancelot receives a letter from what he assumes is a young damsel in distress. He is a little surprised to find that the damsel is actually an effeminate young man named Herbert ("Where Are You?" / "Here Are You") whose overbearing, music-hating father, the king, is forcing him into an arranged marriage. Lancelot advocates for Herbert after the king returns, and Lancelot is outed as a homosexual in the process ("His Name Is Lancelot").

King Arthur begins to give up hope of ever putting on the Broadway musical and laments that he is alone, even though Patsy has been with him the entire time ("I'm All Alone"). The Lady of the Lake appears and tells Arthur that he and the Knights have been in a Broadway musical all along. All that's left is for King Arthur to find the Grail and marry someone. After picking up on some not-too-subtle hints, Arthur decides to marry the Lady of the Lake after he finds the Grail ("Twice In Every Show").

Reunited with his Knights, Arthur meets Tim the Enchanter who warns them of the danger of an evil rabbit. When the rabbit bites a knight's head off, Arthur uses the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch against it, knocking down a nearby hill and revealing that the "evil rabbit" was actually a puppet controlled by a surprised puppeteer. A large stone block showing a combination of letters and numbers is also revealed. After pondering the final clue, Arthur admits that they're "a bit stumped with the clue thing" and asks God to "give them a hand". The grail is "found"; Arthur marries the Lady of the Lake (who reveals that her name is Guinevere); Lancelot marries Herbert; and Sir Robin decides to pursue a career in musical theatre ("Act 2 Finale/ Always Look on the Bright Side of Life (Company Bow)").

Author Info

Eric Idle(Book and Lyrics)

Eric Idle (Book, lyrics, and music) has multi-hyphenated his way through life assiduously avoiding a proper job, from a writer and actor in the legendary "Monty Python" TV series and movies, to the creator and director of "The Rutles," the pre-fab four, whose legend will last a lunchtime. He has appeared on stage in drag singing rude songs at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl as well as performing in two highly successful tours, Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python (2000) and The Greedy Bastard Tour (2003), for which he journeyed 15,000 miles across North America in a bus. HIS GREEDY BASTARD DIARY of that tour is published by Harper Collins. His play PASS THE BUTLER ran for five months in London's West End; he has written two novels, HELLO SAILOR and THE ROAD TO MARS, a children's book, THE QUITE REMARKABLE ADVENTURES OF THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT, and a bedside companion, THE RUTLAND DIRTY WEEKEND BOOK.

John Du Prez(Music)

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.

Casting Information

Following is the Broadway doubling scenario. Scroll down to see great casting tips to create more female roles and more ensemble roles.

KING ARTHUR (Late 30s-60s.): The King of England who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Roundtable and find the Holy Grail. Great Humor. Good singer.

SIR ROBIN (30s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. Ironically called 'Sir Robin the Brave,' though he couldn't be more cowardly. Joins the Knights for the singing and dancing. Also plays GUARD 1 and BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.

SIR LANCELOT (30s-40): A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate, does discover his 'softer side.' This actor MUST be great with character voices and accents, as he also plays THE FRENCH TAUNTER, an arrogant, condescending, over-the-top Frenchman, the KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd, cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of Knights, and TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being with a Scottish accent.

PATSY (30s-40s): King Arthur's horse and servant. Underappreciated but always longing for King Arthur's approval. Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing. Also plays MAYOR, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his home town and the drunken, useless GUARD 2.

SIR GALAHAD (30s): A Knight of the Roundtable. Begins as Dennis, a lower class 'mud gatherer' who becomes Knighted and transforms into the dashing Sir Galahad. Also plays PRINCE HERBERT'S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshireman man at odds with his sensitive son, THE BLACK KNIGHT who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries. Strong bari-tenor singing required.

SIR BEDEVERE (20s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS GALAHAD'S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman, and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot's horse. No solo singing.

THE LADY OF THE LAKE (20s-30s):A Diva. Strong, beautiful, possesses mystical powers. The leading lady of the show. Great singing voice is essential, as she must be able to sing effortlessly in many styles and vocal registers. Especially seeking actresses of all races for this role.

THE FOLLOWING ROLES ARE PLAYED BY THE SAME ACTOR (20s-30s): Tenor singing required. Very good mover.
HISTORIAN: A tweedy academic.
NOT DEAD FRED: A sickly little fellow who, despite others' beliefs, claims he is "not yet dead."
FRENCH GUARD: The condemnatory French sidekick to the French Taunter.
MINSTREL: In Sir Robin's band.
PRINCE HERBERT: The hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing and pines for his love atop a tower.



THE VOICE OF GOD may be pre-recorded.




ENSEMBLE: Six men and six women


Above you can see THE LADY OF THE LAKE, her LAKER GIRLS, and the five chorus/ensemble numbers that already involve female cast members.

A Resource for High School Productions

I. More Female Roles:

The most frequently asked question is, “How can I use more female actors in SPAMALOT?”

Besides THE LADY OF THE LAKE, her LAKER GIRLS, and the five chorus/ensemble numbers that already involve female cast members, here are some additional suggestions for expanding the use of female cast members. 

The following roles might also be played by women (as women or as women playing men):

  •  DENNIS GALAHAD'S MOTHER (usually played by a male actor) 
  •   THE KNIGHTS OF NI (female cast members played these roles on Broadway) 
  •  SIR BORS 
  •  ANGEL: An additional female soloist (an ANGEL) could be created to sing “Find Your Grail”
    (See page 39 below.)

II. The Voice of GOD:

With each license agreement to produce SPAMALOT, you will receive a "Production CD" that will contain a set of logos as well as Eric Idle's pre-show announcement and his “Voice of GOD” audio tracks. So when listing the cast in your program you can write:

GOD………………………………Eric Idle

III. Props:

A complete prop list can be also found on this page if you click the green “Resources” button. 

IV. Projections:

You should be aware that Eric Idle feels that the projections are not necessary for the production. However, Eric said, “If anyone wants to create their own, that’s fine.” 

V. The Cow:

If launching a cow over the wall becomes problematic, a number of rubber chickens “catapulted” over the wall might also work. If a source to purchase an inflatable cow can be found, that information will be posted on the SPAMALOT “Resources” page on the TRW website. 


In the BLACK KNIGHT scene, you could end it after his arms have been removed without having to come up with a complicated way to remove the legs. A few costume companies are looking onto creating a BLACK KNIGHT costume that can be rented. As soon as one becomes available the rental information will be posted on the SPAMALOT “Resources” page on the TRW website. 

The following are answers to specific questions in the script: 

Act One

p. 1 – HISTORIAN – in lieu of projections, an easel and illustration board could be used by the HISTORIAN. 

Song #2 – “Fisch Schlapping Song” – Bright clothing and dancing with fish alone should be enough to show ‘Finland’ without the need for scenery.

p. 6 – ROBIN can say – ‘Bug off’

p. 9 – You may say ‘dung’

Song #6 – “The Lady of the Lake” – If trap doors are not available or another elaborate onstage entrance, the LADY OF THE LAKE and her LAKER GIRLS might enter from the back of the house.

p. 25 – If necessary you can cut the FROG bit as well as the lettering on girl’s panties.

p. 26 – You do not have to have a chandelier. A similar effect could be done with a lighting special. 

p. 35 – THE LADY OF THE LAKE does not have to do a strip tease. What is important is that she is preparing for her Diva moment. 

p. 37 – If spelling “CAMLTOE” presents a problem, the following anagrams are also acceptable:  CLAM TOE, CALM TOE, ACME LOT, CAT MOLE (or create your own)

In Scene 8, budgets (or a lack of fly space) may restrict the ability to lower a ‘wheel of fortune’ table.  Lighting, costumes, and props should be able to demonstrate the Las Vegas style of Camelot without the game wheel.  If there is no wheel, you can cut the line ‘we won!’  Colorful plumes, twinkling lights, light shows, etc. will give it the over the top look. 

p. 38 – The Feet of God are not necessary.  GOD’S offstage voice with reverb and light special should be enough. 

p. 38 – You may replace (or mute) the word ‘pissing,’ and if absolutely necessary, drop the line “And stop looking up my skirt.” 

p. 39 – If you are not using projections, The Grail could be dropped in on fly bar, or THE HISTORIAN could display another illustration of The Grail.

p. 39 – You may change to ‘I’m God, you stupid twit!’ You may also cut the word ‘Jesus!’

p. 39 – Instead of a NASA liftoff for GOD, a sound effect or nothing at all will be fine.

Song #14 – “Find Your Grail” – You can create a few more female soloists by breaking up the LADY OF THE LAKE’s solo between the LADY OF THE LAKE and a few LAKER GIRL soloists.  Another option is two create a new female role, ANGEL, who appears as a messenger from GOD to sing this song, thus creating an additional major female solo.

p. 42 – The “cut out mountain” can be very simple and small. But depending upon the size of your stage and availability of steps, they can also walk down off the stage and across the audience. 

p. 44 – Instead of a painted cyclorama or any elaborate scenery, have one character from each country visited (in traditional costume) hold up a welcome sign (i.e. “Welcome to China” “Egypt Welcomes You”… ) as the knights pass quickly SR to SL and back again (new country/character each pass). If costumes are a problem, you might consider adding Finland (to reuse a costume from the Fisch Schlapping Song). 

p. 45 – You may cut the line by the Taunter, ‘The French B...’.

p. 46 – You may cut the line by the Taunter, ‘I wave my private parts at your aunties’. You may also replace, “I fart in your general direction!” with, “I flatulate in your general direction.”  With an “outrageous” French accent, it is just as funny.

p. 47 – You may use the word ‘heck’

p. 49 – To save on costumes, you can adapt the “French people” entering to look at wooden rabbit. But it would be better to simplify it rather than cut it. It’s a great bit – especially Eponine from Les Miz and the mime. 

p. 50 – You may replace the cow with rubber chickens or something else safer/easier to throw. A few directors are looking for inflatable cows. If one is found, we will place it on our website. 

p. 52 – Before Intermission - as mentioned earlier, the projections are not necessary

Act Two

p. 54 – If the budget doesn’t allow a forest, it could be funny to have just one tree placed onstage to suggest the forest. A large price tag on the tree instead of the projection of dollar signs ($$) would be fine.

p. 55 – You may use the word ‘heck’.

Song #18 – “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” – You may use the lyric, ‘Life’s a piece of dung, though you’ve just begun…’

Song #19 – “Brave Sir Robin” – If necessary you may cut the third verse (‘His head smashed in and his heart….’), ending after verse two. 

After ROBIN sees the BLACK KNIGHT and runs off, you can also end verse 4 with “Who soiled his pants and then ran away…”. 

p. 63 – You may change ARTHUR’S line ‘Look, you stupid knight….’ 

p. 64 – You may change BLACK KNIGHTS line to ‘It’s just a flesh wound. You yellow belly! I’ll bite your legs off! You’re a lily livered upper class twit.’

p. 66 – You may stop song after first line ‘He was running away and chickening out,’ and cut ‘and buggering off...’

Song #20 – “You Won’t Succeed on Broadway” – If this song presents a problem in your community, an alternate version “You Won’t Succeed in Showbiz,” is included in all of the production materials. However, it has been our experience that the original version works better whenever possible.

p. 87 – You may cut ‘you bast...’ from Lance’s line.

Song #24 – “His Name Is Lancelot” – This song can be toned down a bit if necessary. The codpiece and banana are not necessary.  Use your own creative staging and have fun with it. 

p. 90 – If you decide to use “You Won’t Succeed in Showbiz” instead of “You Won’t Succeed on Broadway,” you will notice that script changes are included that deal with no longer looking for Jews. 

p. 92 – In song #25, “I’m All Alone,” PATSY’s lyrics can be changed to “Oh, no, you're not…I'm all you’ve got.” 

p. 96 – TIM does not have to fly at all. If TIM was sitting on top of a visible 6’ ladder on a rolling cart, the line “What manner of man are you that hovers in the air without strings or visible supporting device?” is just as funny. 

p. 98 – You may change ROBIN’s line to “You twit!”

p. 99 – You may replace “Jesus Christ” with “Blimey” or another acceptable expletive. 

p. 101 – If necessary, you may cut after the line, “And now the Congregation shall rise and sing Hymn 101…” with ARTHUR cutting MAYNARD off saying, “There’s no time for that……” 

p. 101 – If your Theatre uses General Admission seating instead of numbered seating, you will have to use one of the alternatives that follow:



p. 105 – You may change to “Holy cow”.

p. 110 – The confetti cannon is not necessary.  This scene can be staged much less extravagantly.



Arthur tosses the Holy Hand Grenade and the Rabbit blows up, and the mound falls over revealing the letters DC.  Behind is a disgruntled rabbit puppet operator, blackened with soot.

BEDEVERE: Behold, sire, the clue.  DC!

ARTHUR: DC?  That’s a bit cryptic isn’t it?

BEDEVERE: Perhaps it’s a location – Washington DC!

LANCELOT: Like in that Nicholas Cage film!

ARTHUR: GOD can’t expect us to travel to Washington DC right now!

LANCELOT: We could take Amtrak and be back in no time 

BEDEVERE: I’m sure these good people won’t mind waiting a bit.  

ARTHUR: We didn’t travel this far to get on a train!  

GALAHAD: Could DC mean “Direct Current”… AC/DC?

ARTHUR: Oh that’s good.

BEDEVERE: But sire, maybe it is a location after all – a stage location.

ARTHUR: I suppose it could be. But where, exactly?  

BEDEVERE: Well we would need to find something Down Center

ARTHUR: DC, Down Center. 

They are staring straight into the audience.

GALAHAD: It’s probably right under our feet.

ARTHUR: (Prays) O Lord we are a bit stumped on the clue thing and we beseech thee to give us a hand.

An enormous hand of God appears, and points into the audience.

ARTHUR: Of course.   It is in the audience- Front Row - Center! 



Arthur tosses the Holy Hand Grenade and the Rabbit blows up, and the mound falls over revealing the letters CURT-C.  Behind is a disgruntled rabbit puppet operator, blackened with soot.

BEDEVERE: Behold, sire, the clue.  CURT-C!

ARTHUR: CURT-C?  That’s a bit cryptic isn’t it?

BEDEVERE: Perhaps it’s a command! We must curtsy to find the grail.

LANCELOT: Oooh! I’ll show you how it’s done.

ARTHUR: I do not believe GOD ALMIGHTY is asking us to curtsy!

LANCELOT: What else could it be sir?

BEDEVERE: Perhaps he was dying dramatically and he wrote “Curtains!” 

ARTHUR: Well he’d hardly bother to carve that in the rock.  

GALAHAD: Could it be something near the curtains?   

ARTHUR: Oh that’s good.

BEDEVERE: Sire, maybe it could be a location.  

ARTHUR: Well it could be but how would that help?  

BEDEVERE: Well we would need to find something at the center of the Curtain.


They are staring straight into the audience.

GALAHAD: It’s probably right under our feet.

ARTHUR: (Prays) O Lord we are a bit stumped on the clue thing and we beseech thee to give us a hand.

An enormous hand of God appears, and points into the audience.

ARTHUR: Of course.   It is in the audience- Front Row - Center!
