Members of Axminster Drama Club are in their final rehearsals for their production of Spamalot.

The show will be staged at the end of September, after months of preparations.

The plot is based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which tells ells the story of King Arthur, in 932 AD, and his search for knights to join his round table and ultimately their quest to find the Holy Grail.

Written by Eric Idle, Spamalot was first staged on Broadway in 2005.

Cast members have been working hard to learn their lines, songs and dance routines to bring this production to the stage at the Guildhall, Axminster from Thursday, September 28 to Sunday, September 30, at 7.30pm and Sunday, October 1, at 1.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 and are available from Archway Bookshop and www.ticketsource.co.uk or via Axminster Drama Club’s Facebook page.

And while the group will welcome some special guests on stage, the identities are being kept a secret.
