Breakdown
This modern, streamlined take on one of the greatest musicals in the American musical theater canon features a cast of 8 (1 woman and 7 men) and showcases the youth, vitality and sexually charged triangle between King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and Sir Lancelot. The creative team is looking for accomplished singers/actors who have facility with language and movement ability—keys will be adapted to their voices. All actors will be required to act as ensemble where needed, and play instruments if possible. Actors of any ethnicity are strongly encouraged to audition for every role.

We see him grow from a scrappy boy known as Wart, into a powerful king. Cerebral yet virile. Pleasant singing voice. Must be an excellent, preferably classically trained, actor.
