Cast of Characters:
Lily Fairweather - Pure as the driven snow. Taken in as an infant

Jonas - A business man and Compton's father.
Ophelia - An outspoken suffragette.
Lord Monty - He loves Ophelia. Has a cheesy English accent.
Robyn Steele - Just released from prison he lives up to his name.

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT

Audition Dates: Sun & Mon, March 18&19, 2018, at 7 pm.
Production Dates: June 7-17, 2018
Cast of Characters:
The cast requirements below contain suggestions of additional doubling roles for each of the
main characters. These doubling suggestions are not written in stone and may change based on
the talent at auditions.
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 and BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.
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.’ This actor MUST be great with character
voices and accents, as he also plays THE FRENCH TAUNTER, an arrogant, condescending,
over-the-top Frenchman, the KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd, cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of
Knights, and TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being with a Scottish accent.
PATSY (30s-40s): King Arthur’s horse and servant. Under appreciated 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 and the drunken,
useless GUARD 2.
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
PRINCE HERBERT’S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshireman man at odds with his sensitive
son, THE BLACK KNIGHT who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries. Strong baritenor
SIR BEDEVERE (20s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS
GALAHAD’S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman, and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot’s horse. No
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.
THE FOLLOWING ROLES ARE PLAYED BY THE SAME ACTOR (20s-30s): Tenor singing
required. Very good mover. HISTORIAN: A tweedy academic. NOT DEAD FRED: A sickly
little fellow who, despite others’ beliefs, claims he is “not yet dead.” 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.
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 are two of the MALE ENSEMBLE
ROBIN’S MINSTRELS are also ENSEMBLE: 2 MEN, 1 WOMAN.
SIR BORS is MALE ENSEMBLE.
ENSEMBLE: Six men and six women
CASTING TIPS: Above you can see THE LADY OF THE LAKE, her LAKER GIRLS, and the
five chorus/ensemble numbers that already involve female cast members.
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE ROLES ABOVE ARE DOUBLING SUGGESTIONS,
I MAY CAST SOME SEPARATELY.
