Roles
  • KING ARTHUR (Late 30’s-60’s): The King of England who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Roundtable and find the Holy Grail. 
    Great Humor. Good singer.
  • SIR ROBIN (20’s-40’s): Ironically called Sir Robin the Brave, though he couldn’t be more cowardly.  Joins the Knights for the singing and dancing.  
                          Also plays:  GUARD 1 & BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.
  • SIR LANCELOT (20’s-40’s): A Knight of the Roundtable.  He is fearless to a bloody fault, but through a twist of fate, does discover his “softer side”.
    This actor MUST be great with character voices and accents
                         Also plays:
                          -THE FRENCH TAUNTER, an arrogant, condescending, over-the-top Frenchman
                         -KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of Knights
                         -TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being with a Scottish accent.
  • PATSY (20’s-40’s): King Arthur’s horse and servant.  Underappreciated but always longing for King Arthur’s approval.
    Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing.
                         Also plays:
                         -MAYOR, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his home town
                         -GUARD 2, drunk and useless
  • SIR GALAHAD (20’s-40’s): A Knight of the Roundtable.  Begins as DENNIS, a lower class “mud gatherer” who becomes knighted and transforms
    into the dashing Sir Galahad
                          Also plays:
                         -PRINCE HERBERT’S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshireman at odds with his sensitive son
                         -THE BLACK KNIGHT, always ready to duel despite multiple injuries. Strong baritenor singing is required
  • SIR BEDEVERE (20’s-40’s): A Knight of the Roundtable.  An inept scholar. No solo singing
                          Also plays:
                          -DENNIS GALAHAD’s MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman
                          -CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot’s horse.
  • THE LADY OF THE LAKE (20’s-30’s): A Diva.  Strong, beautiful, possesses mystical powers.  The leading lady of the show.  Great singing voice is essential,
    as she must be able to sing effortlessly in many styles and vocal registers.
  • HISTORIAN (20’s-40’s):  A tweedy academic. Tenor Singing Required. Very Good Mover.
                           *Also plays:
                           -FRED, a sickly little fellow who, despite others’ beliefs, claims he is “not dead yet.”
                           -FRENCH GUARD, the condemnatory French sidekick to the French Taunter
                           -MINSTREL, in Sir Robin’s band
                           -PRINCE HERBERT, the hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing, and pines for his love atop a tower
  • MALE AND FEMALE ENSEMBLE
                           -SIR NOT APPEARING may double as THE DANCING MONK
                           -A MALE DANCER appears as THE DANCING NUN
                          -THE VOICE OF GOD may be pre-recorded
                          -TWO FRENCH GUARDS
                          -ROBIN’S MINSTRELS
                          -SIR BORS

Members of the ensemble should be physically fit, and dance and sing reasonably well; it’s an extremely heavy dancing and singing show.
You may be involved in as many as 11 production numbers and will be very busy this summer☺
