SPAMALOT Cast List

My thanks to everyone who auditioned. As is typical when casting there were many difficult choices to make and I wish I could have cast everyone. On the list below I have only indicated the predominate roles people will play. We will also be assigning roles to the Ensemble. While a lot of the role distribution will remain as it is listed in the script, a few of the roles/numbers will be performed by Ensemble members where it makes sense to do so and where it is logistically possible. So stay tuned as we figure out what will work and what will not. Rest assured, everyone will be very busy! In the meantime, please indicate your acceptance by initialing this sheet or confirming by phone. Keep watching the board, Facebook, etc., for scheduling of dance rehearsals. We will schedule dance rehearsals for the days and times people have indicated on their audition forms that they would be available. We will also do our best to provide 24 hour notice. Because of other shows things will be a little sporadic in the beginning, but that will change once we get rolling into October. Congratulations! I look forward to working with you all. We have a ton of work ahead of us, so pick up a script ASAP.
