The Halifax Amateur Operatic Society present Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax.

SPAMALOT – The Monty Python Musical Spamtacular from Wednesday 10 April to Saturday 13 April – all at 7:30pm.

Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful classic film ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’, SPAMALOT is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious flatulent Frenchmen.
Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – which unsurprisingly results in unending uproarious consequences, accompanied by a plethora of calamitous comic tunes including Brave Sir Robin, We’re Knights of the Round Table and the perennial favourite Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

“Funnier than the black death!” This Tony® Award Winner for Best Musical will undoubtedly be another jewel in the crown for HAOS Productions, our local renowned Theatrical Company that wowed us previously with such successes as Memories from the musicals, Hairspray, Beauty & the Beast and the hilarious The Producers. Don’t miss the opportunity to find your grail, roll in the aisles, and experience one of the greatest classic comedy film to musical conversions of all time!

Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.victoriatheatre.co.uk/whats-on/monty-pythons-spamalot or by calling the Box Office on 01422 351158.

“Somewhere, hidden amongst the thorny brambles is a little kingdom where everyone is very very small…”

From the makers of Peppa Pig comes this BAFTA award-winning television animation live on stage!
Holly is a young Fairy Princess, who is still learning how to fly and her magic doesn’t always go quite according to plan. Her best friend, Ben the Elf, doesn’t have wings and he doesn’t do magic, but he runs very fast and flies on the back of Gaston the Ladybird. They live in the Little Kingdom, a tiny land where flowers and grass rise high above them and every day is an adventure.

Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston the Ladybird clean up his messy cave, they go on a trip into The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum, even plan a surprise birthday party for King Thistle, and oops, let’s hope there’s not another jelly flood!

Join Ben and Holly, and their friends on this exciting, enchanting and magical musical adventure packed full of games, songs and laughter. This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family!

Giants of Science at the Victoria Theatre

From the people who brought you the hilarious – 6 Wives of Henry VIII, Living Spit are returning to Halifax, this time to the Victoria Theatre with their new comedy show on Thursday 28 February, 7:30pm.

Howard Coggins knows nothing about Science. Stu Mcloughlin knows even less.

Nevertheless, they have agreed to give a lecture on the subject, and after enlisting the help of the smartest scientific sages of the ages, that’s just what they aim to do.

They’re determined, like a pair of Atoms missing a couple of electrons, to stay positive. With jarring jokes, pitiful puppetry and the silliest of scientific songs, you can expect this raucous romp through the hilarious history of scientific stupidity to be… well, if nothing else, thoroughly entertaining.

It might even be… scien-triffic!

Tickets are available through the Victoria Theatre booking office on 01422 351158.
