Upcoming Auditions

audition-noticeSPAMALOT Auditions

Audition Dates:
November 13 6:30pm and November 14 10:00am
Performances Dates:
March 17 – April 2, 2016

Directed by Arlene Filkoff with musical direction by Jill Dillingham and choreography by Jennifer McCarthy, SPAMALOT is the Monty Python spoof on the Arthurian court legends and Arthur’s pursuit of the Holy Grail. It is a musical comedy extraordinaire with room for many actors or room for some actors to play multiple parts depending on casting.

Seeking 4 males and 2 females for principal roles. Strong comedic acting skills is a must as well as the ability to learn simple dance steps. We are also casting an ensemble of singers and dancers

Audition will consist of a one minute song which does not have to be from the show and readings from the script.
For questions or conflicts call Arlene at 904 583-8629.


King Arthur – The King of England who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Roundtable and find the Holy Grail. Great humor. Good singer.

Sir Robin – A Knight of the Roundtable. Ironically called “Sir Robin the Brave,” though he couldn’t be more cowardly. Joins the Knights for the singing and dancing. Can also play Guard 1 and Brother Maynard, a long-winded monk.

Sir Lancelot – A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault, but does discover his “softer side.” Must be great with character voices and accents – can also play 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 – King Arthur’s horse and servant. Underappreciated, but always longing for King Arthur’s approval. Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing. Can also play Mayor, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his hometown. Also plays the drunken, useless Guard 2.

Sir Galahad – A Knight of the Roundtable. Begins as Dennis, a lower class “mud gatherer” who becomes Knighted and transforms into the dashing Sir Galahad. Can also play 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. Strong bari-tenor singing required.

Sir Bedevere – A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Can also play Concorde, Sir Lancelot’s horse. No solo singing. The following can played by the same actor. If not, all must be very good movers and tenors.

Historian: A tweedy academic.

Not Dead Fred: A sickly fellow.

French Guard: Condemnatory French sidekick to the French Taunter.

Minstrel: In Sir Robin’s band.

Prince Herbert: Hopeful and frilly prince. Loves to sing. Pines for his love.

The Lady of the Lake – 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.

Strong singer-dancers. Probably 6 Men, 6 Women. Must all be very strong dancers and able to sing.
