Monty Python’s SPAMALOT
Young @ Part
Book and lyric Eric Idle
Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle
Directed by Benjamin Cole
The story centers around King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail. After a rather silly bit of miscommunication leads us briefly to Finland, our king and his ever faithful squire Patsy begin to search for knights to accompany him on his Quest. He finds his first in the unlikely guise of Dennis, a hideous local mud farmer. After convincing the locals that he is the king by conjuring the Lady of Lake to prove it, Dennis is transformed into Sir Galahad. The rest of the knights are found far and wide and The Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls, send our stalwart band on their way. They meet up with an unforgettable slew of outrageously kooky characters and musical hilarity ensues as Arthur and the Knights make their journey.

This is a musical production.
*Students should prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue for auditions AND a 1-2 minute contemporary song. Please provide your own recorded accompaniment to sing to, or be prepared to sing a cappella. An accompanist will not be present for auditions. Monologues are a short speech delivered by one character and can be from any play, musical, movie, or book. If you’re having difficulty finding a monologue, you might check out audition monologues books at your local library or book store, or try online at a monologue site like this. Or another monologue site like this.
Or, try this link for Shakespeare monologue suggestions.
Initial Audition appointments should only take about 5-10 minutes.
It is possible that not all actors will be called at all times for all rehearsals, but please list any conflicts within this rehearsal period on audition form. Knowing a student has a conflict allows us to make the best use of student’s time while they are in rehearsal. Some conflicts may be acceptable within the rehearsal period, but no conflicts will be allowed during Tech/Dress rehearsals or performances. Conflicts may influence casting decisions.
Students/parents will be asked to fill out an audition form with general student contact information and ALL POSSIBLE CONFLICTS during our process. No additional conflicts will be accepted beyond what is offered on the audition form. If frequent or repeated lateness and/or unexpected absences occur during the rehearsal process this may lead to a student’s lines being reassigned, student being removed from scenes, songs or even the dismissal from the entire production, and will affect future casting consideration. There is no refund in production fee if student is asked to leave the production.
Headshots and resumes are not required at auditions, but are always encouraged. If no headshot is provided at auditions we may ask to take a photo of the student to better reference their appearance in connection with their audition form during casting decisions.
This is an advanced level Theatre School @ North Coast Rep production. As with all Theatre School productions, it is possible that not all students who audition will be cast.
