Theatre Kent is holding auditions June 10 and 11 for Spamalot, its first show of the 2015-16 season.
Spamalot is the musical stage version of the classic comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, about King Arthur’s quest.
The play was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, and won four, including Best Musical.
Principal actors include six males and one female, and there are a large number of ensemble roles available. Auditions are open to everyone aged 14 and older and will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Studio One at the Chatham Cultural Centre.
No appointments are required but interested performers should prepare one contemporary musical theatre song, approximately one to two minutes in length. An accompanist will be provided.
Since the show is highly character-driven, performers are encouraged to choose a song that not only highlights their vocal ability, but also showcases their acting skills.
Those auditioning may also be asked to read from the script, which will be provided. More information about the principal roles, as well as the audition sides can be found online at www.theatrekent.wix.com/spamalot. Those interested in principal roles should try to become familiar with these scenes, but memorization is not required.
The show is being directed and choreographed by Jamie Johnston, with music direction by Tom Overton. Sally Henley is the producer.
