Summary: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy "Monty Python
and the Holy Grail," "SPAMALOT" retells the legend of King
Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of showgirls --
not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. The Tony Award-winning
Best Musical, "Monty Python's SPAMALOT" has been hailed as "a
no-holds-barred smash hit." (The New Yorker).

"Ensemble" member plays multiple roles. Accents needed in this show:

ARTHUR: 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: A Diva. Strong, beautiful,

essential, as she must be able to sing effortlessly in many styles and vocal
registers. Sings everything from opera to pop to scatting. Gets angry easily.
- SIR ROBIN: 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. A good mover.
- SIR LANCELOT:
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.
- PATSY: King Arthur's horse and servant.
Under-appreciated but always longing for Arthur's approval. Good, funny,
physical mover with some tap dancing. Very good mover. Tap skills a bonus.
- SIR GALAHAD: A Knight of the Round Table. Begins
as Dennis, a lower class "mud gatherer" who becomes knighted and
transforms into the dashing Sir Galahad.
- SIR BEDEVERE:
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.
- PRINCE HERBERT: The hopeful and frilly prince who loves to
sing and pines for his love atop a tower. Tenor singing required. Very good
