NWT Spamalot casting announcement
Following three excessively silly years in the West End Monty Python’s Spamalot is unleashed (again). Starring Joe Pasquale and his son Joe Tracini at New Wimbledon Theatre 8-13 June.
Having travelled the length and breadth of the country since January in search of The Holy Grail, Joe Pasquale now continues his hilarious quest at theatres across the land with the help of his actor son Joe Tracini (handy that he’s also called Joe, so that probably helps cut down on sign writing costs at least) who will play Patsy.
The multi-award winning musical heads to New Wimbledon Theatre for one week only this June and Joe is thrilled to join his father Joe on Wimbledon’s stage in the hugely popular comedy jaunt, which is (loosely) based on the classic film, Monty Python And The Holy Grail.
Joe Tracini says: 'When I was little, I had three dreams for when I grew up… to be in a musical, to work with my Dad, and to bang two halves of a coconut together on a nightly basis. Playing Patsy in Spamalot is making all of them come true at once. I'm honoured that I'm being trusted with the part, to sing the classic song “Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life”, and to be joining such a brilliant company. Come and see us please, it's funnier if you're there.'
Best known for his roles as Dennis Savage in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks and as DK in BBC Three’s Coming of Age, Joe Tracini studied at the world-famous Italia Conti Academy of Arts in London before landing his first role in My Spy Family on Cartoon Network’s sister channel, Boomerang. He was nominated for three Inside Soap Awards and a British Soap Award during his time in Hollyoaks.
