The cast includes the leading roles King Arthur, ruler of England and creator of the Round Table; Guinevere, his wife and inspiration; and Lancelot, the chivalrous knight with strong ideals.

Other roles include three named knights, who each have singing solos; King Pellinore, Arthur's ally; Merlin, the magician; Mordred, Arthur's son; and Tom of Warwick, a young man who seeks to be a knight.

There are some smaller roles also available for both males and females.

The ensemble will include men and women who sing several songs throughout the production. Those auditioning should be age 16 or over, with the exception of Tom, who is age 10-13.

Auditions will include singing a prepared song and reading from the script. Those seeking leading roles should prepare a song from the show. An accompanist will be provided.
