Additional Rehearsals added April 12 until opening
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 Humour. Good singer.
VOCAL RANGE: Baritone (Low G2 - High F4)
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 the drunken, useless GUARD 2.
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor/Baritone (Low Bb3 - High G5)
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.
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor/Baritone (Low D3 - High G4)
SIR LANCELOT (30s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate, does discover his 'softer side.'
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor/Baritone (Low C3 - High E4)
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.
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor (Low Bb3 to High Bb5)
SIR BEDEVERE (20s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd, cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of Knights
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor/Baritone with falsetto (Low D3 - High G4)
THE LADY OF THE LAKE (20s-30s): A Diva. Strong, beautiful, possesses mystical powers.
VOCAL RANGE: Alto (Low E3 – High B6)
NOT DEAD FRED: A sickly little fellow who, despite others' beliefs, claims he is "not yet dead." Also plays MINSTREL #1, in Sir Robin's band and PRINCE HERBERT, the hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing and pines for his love atop a tower.
VOCAL RANGE: Tenor (Low A2 – High A5)
HISTORIAN: A tweedy academic also plays GUARD 1 and BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.
THE FRENCH TAUNTER: an arrogant, condescending, over-the-top Frenchman, plays MAYOR, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his home town and also plays PRINCE HERBERT'S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshire man at odds with his sensitive son & SWALLOW MAN #1
GALAHAD'S MOTHER: a shrill peasant woman, also plays SWALLOW MAN #2 and FRENCHIE
THE BLACK KNIGHT: who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries and TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being with a Scottish accent.
LAKER GIRLS: Six female singers/dancers
ENSEMBLE: The ensemble plays a wide variety of roles.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls?
The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”
