King Arthur, Baritone, 30-60 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, Alto, 20-40. 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, Tenor/Baritone, 30-40. 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.
Sir Lancelot, Tenor/Baritone, 30-40. A Knight of the Round Table. 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, Tenor/Baritone, 30-40. King Arthur's horse and servant. 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. Tap skills a bonus.
Sir Galahad, Tenor, 30-40.. A Knight of the Round Table. 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.
Sir Bevedere, Tenor/Baritone with falsetto, 20-40. A Knight of the Round Table. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS GALAHAD'S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman; and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot's horse.
Not Dead Fred, Tenor, 20-30. A sickly little fellow who -- despite others' beliefs -- claims he is "not yet dead"; a FRENCH GUARD, the condemnatory sidekick to the French Taunter; a MINSTREL 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.
