News   Monty Python's Spamalot to Tour U.K. Starting in May; Jodie Prenger Stars
Monty Python's Spamalot is to hit the U.K. road, with Jodie Prenger — fresh from starring as Nancy in Oliver! at the West End's Theatre Royal, Drury Lane — to open the tour as the Lady of the Lake.

As previously announced, the tour will commence at the New Wimbledon Theatre in south west London, beginning performances May 29 for a run through June 5, before continuing to tour the U.K.

According to press materials, the tour will see it wending "its way through the U.K. to Nottingham (Sherriff approved, Robin not welcome), Glasgow (pending Scots uprising), Brighton (unless captured by the French), Bromley, Manchester Opera House, Leeds (the ever so Grand Theatre), Newcastle (in a special black and white version), Southampton (see Brighton), Stoke, Liverpool, Aberdeen, Cardiff (sheep go half price), Bristol, Woking, Sunderland, Edinburgh (assuming the Scots behave), Oxford, Torquay, York and (Ye Olde) Milton Keynes before settling down for four weeks at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham for the Christmas season (Season of Goodwill – Bring Gifts!!). In 2011 it will move on to yet more theatres, including the new state of the art Waterside in Aylesbury."

Prenger has been announced to play the dates in Wimbledon, Bromley, Brighton and Manchester. Prenger won the role of Nancy in the revival production of Oliver! at Theatre Royal Drury Lane by public vote in BBC1 "I'd Do Anything." She is a regular presenter of "The Midweek National Lottery" on BBC1. Other television appearances include "GMTV," "Daily Cook's Challenge," "Loose Women," "Children In Need," "Guesstimation," "As Seen On TV," "All Star Family Fortunes," "Tonight's the Night" and "New Year's Eve Live 2008." She has appeared on BBC Radio 2 covering for Elaine Paige and Paul O'Grady as well as co-hosting with Graham Norton for Children in Need 2009. She can be heard dueting on John Barrowman's new album, and has an autobiography, "My Story," out now.

Further casting is still to be announced. The producers are Howard Panter for the Ambassador Theatre Group and Bill Kenwright.
