Monty Python’s SPAMALOT Scenic Projections
Quirky, fun and slightly odd, our scenic projections for “Spamalot” are very Python-esque, with content matching the original 2005 Broadway production. This projection series is very unique within our catalog as it features optional, added projections that go above and beyond what the script calls for.
Our best seller, almost every production of “Spamalot” in the world features our scenic projections. The eccentric storyline is fast paced and mounting the live production without a lot of blackouts is essential to keep the energy high. We’ve created transitions between scenes which offer the audience something extra to enjoy.
We developed the projections for “Spamalot” with multiple options. During the traveling sequence, animated characters can move through a tropical island, desert lake and the Great Wall of China. This sequence can also be used without the characters, allowing actors on stage to do the traveling.
As cast members run away from the French taunter at the end of the first act, we’ve embedded special-effect animation into the projections. A large wooden rabbit and other outlandish items are hurled from the castle towards the audience. As the sing-a-long song “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” plays at the end of the show, our projections display the lyrics to encourage the audience to join in.
Our projections for “Spamalot” can be utilized as a backdrop replacement or a complete set. We recommend a built set of trees, stone walls or castle towers in the wing space with projections in the center of the stage, as it has worked well for many of our clients.
