Role in musical is holy grail

ALL things Monty Python were alive and well in Launceston yesterday, as actors yelled ``bring out your dead'' for the Launceston Musical Society's  Spamalot  auditions.

The auditions for the musical, which  will be directed by Jeff Hockley and staged in October, started on Friday night and finished yesterday at Scotch Oakburn College.

The musical comedy is an adaption of the 1975 film  Monty Python and the Holy Grail  and   includes a song from  Life of Brian .

Launceston actress Kellie Cutler was one of many people to audition.

``The show's a comedy which really appeals to me,'' she said.

``You've got to give these things a go . . .  and as a mother and a wife, I still think it's important that you do something for yourself.''

Cutler caught the theatre bug after being part of LMS's production of  Annie  last October and said she would love to be part of  Spamalot .

Successful auditionees will spend three months rehearsing the show  before they move into the Princess Theatre in mid-October.

It will open  on October 22 and run until October 26.
