Ages listed are not necessarily the age of the actor portraying the character.
KING ARTHUR (Late 30s-60s.): 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 (30s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. 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.
SIR LANCELOT (30s-40): A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate, does discover his ‘softer side.’ Also plays Knight of Ni & a Monk.
PATSY (30s-40s): King Arthur’s horse and servant. Underappreciated but always longing for King Arthur’s approval. Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing.
SIR GALAHAD (30s): 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 The Black Knight & a Monk.
SIR BEDEVERE (20s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays Dennis Galahad’s Mother & a Monk.
THE LADY OF THE LAKE (20s-30s): 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. Especially seeking actresses of all races for this role. Comedic timing necessary.
ENSEMBLE: Six Men & Six Women who will also play: The Historian, Minstrels, French Guards, Brother Maynard, Not Dead Fred, Herbert & his Father, Concorde, Knights of Ni & Tim the Enchanter (along with others). Strong acting, dancing, singing skills needed for these chameleons of the cast.
