SPAMALOT CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
**Equity contracts will be considered for all roles.
NOTE: Seeking actors that have a strong sense of knowledge about this type of comedy and are familiar with the Monty Python movies. We want to stay very true to what the fans have come to know and love about this franchise.
KING ARTHUR: Male to play 40’s-60’s (Baritone [Low G2 — High F4]). 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.
THE LADY OF THE LAKE: Female to play 20’s-40‘s (Alto with large range [Low E3 — High B6]). 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. Sings everything from opera to pop to scatting.
SIR ROBIN: Male to play 30’s-40‘s (Tenor/Baritone [Low D3 — High G4]). A Knight of the Round Table. 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. A good mover.
SIR LANCELOT: Male to play 30’s-40‘s (Tenor/Baritone [Low C3 — High E4]). A Knight of the Round Table. Very handsome. He is fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate discovers 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: Male to play 30’s-40‘s (Tenor/Baritone [Low Bb3 — High G5]). MUST ATTEND DANCE CALL FOR CONSIDERATION. Tap skills a MUST. King Arthur’s horse and servant. On the shorter side. Under-appreciated but always longing for 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 hometown; and the drunken, useless GUARD 2. Very good mover.
SIR GALAHAD: Male to play 30‘s (Tenor [Low Bb3 — High Bb5]). A Knight of the Round Table. Very handsome. 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. Strong bari-tenor singing required.
SIR BEDEVERE: Male to play 20’s-40‘s (Tenor/Baritone with falsetto [Low D3 — High G4]). A Knight of the Round Table. Larger fellow. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS GALAHAD’S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman; and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot’s horse.
HISTORIAN/NOT DEAD FRED/ PRINCE HERBERT/ MINSTREL/ FRENCH GUARD: This role is cast.
Anyone interested in ensemble must attend the dance call.
MALE ENSEMBLE (6 men). Seeking strong dancers and singers (must be able to hold tight harmonies) of all different types to play many roles including the other Knights of the Round Table, Sir Not Appearing, Sir Bohrs, Bodies in “Not Yet Dead,” the Dancing Monk, the Dancing Nun, French Citizens, Finland Citizens, a French Guard, Robin’s Minstrel, and more! Strong dance skills preferred; tap skills a bonus. All six men tap in “Brightside” (quite extensive tapping) and need to be able to run and jump onto the Camelot tables, and do the “Fiddler” knee slides. A few must have strong Russians. It is a rigorous and deceptively difficult show for the men.
FEMALE ENSEMBLE (6 women). Seeking strong and sexy dancers who sing very well and can hold harmonies, to play many roles including the Camelot Girls, the Laker Girls, a French Guard, Knights of Ni, two of Robin’s Minstrels, French Citizens, Finland Citizens, and more! All will be wearing very skimpy/revealing costumes in the show. Tap skills a bonus.
