KING ARTHUR
Late 30s-60s: King of England. Sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Roundtable & 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 & dancing. Also plays GUARD 1 & BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk.

SIR LANCELOT
30s-40: A Knight of the Roundtable. Fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate, does discover his 'softer side.' This actor MUST be great with character voices & 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 & 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 & 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 & vocal registers. Especially seeking actresses of all ethnicities.

THE FOLLOWING ROLES PLAYED BY THE SAME ACTOR
(20s-30s): Tenor 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."
