Location: Palo Alto, CA
Ethnicity: All ethnicities
We're thrilled to announce auditions for our "yuge" spring musical, Monty Python's "SPAMALOT".
Please prepare a 16-32 bar selection of a contemporary comedic musical theater piece that shows off your vocal range and gives a sense of your personality. An accompanist will be provided, no tapes or recordings please, bring sheet music in your key. Also, if you have any special skills (juggling, tumbling, magic tricks, unicycle etc...) we'd love to see them!
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Monty Python's Spamalot, the musical comedy sensation lovingly ripped off from the film classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail, arrives this spring to spread laughter and cheer throughout the kingdom. As gleefully silly yet wickedly smart as Monty Python, the beloved British comedy troupe that inspired it, Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. You'll enjoy some mostly handsome Knights, a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people, before the familiar sound of clomping coconut shells brings down the curtain on the season's goofiest, if satirically dead-on, comic delights. Winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Musical!
THE LADY OF THE LAKE (Alto with large range [Low E3 - High B6], 20s-40s). 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. Gets angry easily.
EVERY "Ensemble" member plays at least SIX roles. The busiest principal player plays only FIVE roles.
FEMALE ENSEMBLE (6 women). Seeking strong dancers and singers to play many roles including the Camelot Girls, the Laker Girls, a French Guard, Knights of Ni, two of Robin's Minstrels, French Citizens, Finland Citizens, and more! Strong dance skills preferred, tap skills a bonus.
