Sieber to ‘Spam’ for Sills

Thesp will be replaced by 'Cinderella's' Sieber

“Monty Python’s Spamalot” has a new knight.

Douglas Sills, who had been set to play Sir Galahad, has amicably left the cast of the Broadway-bound musical.

He’ll be replaced by Christopher Sieber, who just played the Prince, in New York City Opera’s staging of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.”

Mike Nichols directs the tuner, which stars Tim Curry (King Arthur), David Hyde Pierce (Sir Robin) and Hank Azaria (Lancelot). Musicalized version of the movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” will have its world preem at Chicago’s Shubert Theater Dec. 21-Jan. 23; it starts previews at Broadway’s Shubert Theater Feb. 14 and opens March 17.

Book is by Eric Idle, who has written three new songs with John Du Prez: “Brave Sir Robin,” “He’s Going to Tell” and “Knights of the Round Table.” Orchestrations are by Larry Hochman, with music arrangements by Glen Kelly and Michael Keller as musical coordinator.
