Michael Ball and Gary Lineker become latest celebrities to play God in Spamalot at the Playhouse The

Michael Ball, Professor Brian Cox, Greg Dyke, Robert Lindsay and Gary Lineker are the latest big names to play God (a pre-recorded cameo role) in the West End production of Spamalot at the Playhouse Theatre. Each star can be seen as God for one week only to raise money for charity.

Michael Palin, Hugh Bonneville, Barbara Windsor, Larry Lamb, Bradley Walsh, Simon Callow and Christopher Biggins are just a few of the celebrities who played God over the summer. The role of God, traditionally played by Eric Idle, features in Spamalot when King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table are given their quest to find The Holy Grail.

 
Sir Howard Panter (producer of Spamalot) said: “It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to bring friends of the show in to the role of God in this way, so that we can help such deserving causes while making audiences laugh at the same time.”
 
Spamalot currently stars Les Dennis as King Arthur, Bonnie Langford as The Lady of The Lake and Warwick Davis as Patsy. ‘Lovingly ripped off’ from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot was created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez. The current production at the Playhouse Theatre is a new, slicker version of the show directed by Christopher Luscombe. Spamalot features the famous song ‘Always Look On The Bright Side of Life’.
 
Michael Ball can be seen playing God until Saturday 26th October. Gary Lineker takes over on 4th November. Further dates will be announced soon. Spamalot is currently booking at the Playhouse Theatre until 8th February 2014.
