Full Character Breakdown

Based on “The Once and Future King” by T.H. White, CAMELOT is the classic musical story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table featuring such musical numbers as The Simple Joys of Maidenhood, The Lusty Month of May, How to Handle a Woman, I Loved You Once in Silence, If Ever I Would Leave You, What Do the Simple Folk Do? and of course the title song.

NOTE: This production will NOT utilize a chorus. ALL 10 roles are principals (with some doubling as noted below). All musical numbers will be performed by the principals. ALL roles require ability to do excellent British RP accents.

Will cast ONLY THREE of the following four roles under AEA contracts, the balance of the cast will be non-union: Arthur, Lancelot, Merlyn/Pellinore, Guenevere.

King Arthur
Baritone. 30s–40s but able to convincingly portray ages 18 – 30. Excellent actor/singer with ability to portray the impish and insecure younger king and transform to the mature and commanding King of Camelot. Seeking a strong leading man with warmth, comic ability and great stage presence. Starring role. Could be cast with a “name” performer.

Merlyn/Pellinore
Baritone 50s–70s. The legendary magician who “youthens” rather than ages. Grandiose but warm mentor to the young Arthur. Doubles as King Pellinore, a visitor to Camelot who is often blustery and befuddled (think older English character actors like Nigel Bruce and Robert Coote). Excellent character actor/singer with great comic timing and presence. Featured role.

Lancelot
Baritone 20s. Tall, handsome Knight from France who has come to join King Arthur’s Round Table but falls in love with Queen Guenevere. Strives to be good, loyal and virtuous in all he does and sometimes takes himself too seriously. Excellent singer/actor with magnificent voice, great looks and physique and some comic ability. Leading role.

Guenevere
Mezzo 25-30 but able to convincingly portray ages 16-28. Lady from a distant court who comes to Camelot to be Arthur’s bride and queen. She loves Arthur but reluctantly becomes enamored of Lancelot. Excellent singer/actress with great presence and attractive with good figure. Must have exceptional singing voice and ability to transform from insecure young lady to Queen. Leading role.
