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.
Director’s note: This play takes place in Britain as far as all roles are concerned and no role uses an “American” accent. Readings during auditions will expect British accents for most roles except as otherwise specified below (French and Scottish for some roles). For even more specificity, KING ARTHUR has a standard British accent and most others have cockney accents. As a reference, find clips of the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail to compare role accents.
KING ARTHUR (Late 30s-60s.): The King of England who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Round Table 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. Bonus: piano skill
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. 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 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 bari-tenor singing required.
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 solo singing.
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
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
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE ROLES ABOVE ARE DOUBLING SUGGESTIONS, I may cast some separately.
Come prepared to read from the script, learn choreography, and sing a song (accompanist provided).
Perusal scripts are available at the Riverwalk Theatre Office, Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5:30pm
