MONTY Python legend, Michael Palin, will continue The Summer of Spamalot Charity Gods run when he plays God on screen in Spamalot at The Playhouse Theatre for the week of August 26 to August 31, 2013.

The Summer of Spamalot Charity Gods has been created to raise money for several charities including Headley Court Rehabilitation Centre, The Make A Wish Foundation, the Great Ormond Street Hospital, Scene & Heard, Stage For Age and Keats Community Library, which are supported by the actors who are playing God.

Michael Palin’s nominated charity is Action for Stammering Children.

Sir Howard Panter, producer of Spamalot for Ambassador Theatre Group, 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.”

The role of God features in Spamalot when King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table are given their quest to find The Holy Grail.

Spamalot has also announced that it is extending its current run until February 8, 2014.

The production recently started a new performance schedule, which includes two shows on Fridays at 6pm and 9pm.

Les Dennis is currently playing the role of King Arthur, with Bonnie Langford as The Lady of The Lake. And in the week commencing September 2, 2013, the role of God will be played by Larry Lamb.
