Young upstarts Dick and Dom to play King Arthur and Patsy in Spamalot And they want you to star in their video!
CBBC’s Dick and Dom will star together on stage in Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Playhouse Theatre, where they will play the roles of King Arthur and Patsy from 2nd December for six weeks over the Christmas and New Year festive period.
Having found fame as presenters of double BAFTA Award winning BBC1 weekend show, Dick and Dom In Da House, Dick and Dom have presented a wide range of TV and radio show including CBBC’s Splatalot, BBC Radio 1’s The Sunday Morning Show, Sky1’s Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old and Challenge TV’s Takeshi’s Castle. They even starred on the big screen when they appeared in Horrid Henry: The Movie, but appearing together in Spamalot will be the pair’s West End musical debut.
-Dick (Richard McCourt) said; “I’ve always been a huge fan of all things Monty Python and so am very excited about the fact that I’m getting the chance to prove myself as King Arthur and take hold of the mighty Excalibur.”
-Dom (Dominic Wood) said; “Everyone knows the legendary Always Look On The Bright Side and so I can’t wait to get started as Patsy and to be able to perform the song on stage each night.”
