ROLES AVAILABLE (please note British accents required):
KING ARTHUR (Baritone, 30-60): 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 (Baritone, 25-40): 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. Piano playing an asset. Also plays GUARD 1 and BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.
SIR LANCELOT dba LANCE (Baritone, 30-45): A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault, but through a twist of fate, does discover his “softer side.” MUST be great with character voices and accents. Also plays THE FRENCH TAUNTER, THE KNIGHT OF NI and TIM THE ENCHANTER.
PATSY (Baritone/Tenor, 30-50): King Arthur’s horse and servant. Underappreciated but always longing for King Arthur’s approval. Funny, good physical mover with some tap dancing. Also plays MAYOR, and the drunken, useless GUARD 2.
SIR GALAHAD (Baritone/Tenor, 25-40): A Knight of 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, and THE BLACK KNIGHT, who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries.
SIR BEDEVERE (Baritone, 20-40): A Knight of Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays GALAHAD’S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman, and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot’s horse.
THE LADY OF THE LAKE (Alto, 20-45): 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.
PRINCE HERBERT (Tenor, 25-45): The hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing, and pines for his love atop a tower. Also plays HISTORIAN, a tweedy academic, and NOT DEAD FRED, a sickly little fellow who, despite others’ beliefs, claims he is “not yet dead”.
ENSEMBLE MEMBERS will be playing the following roles:
FRENCH GUARD: The condemnatory French sidekick to the French Taunter.
MINSTREL: In Sir Robin’s band.

SIR BORS: A Knight of the Roundtable.
