ARVADA CENTER – CAMELOT
ARTHUR (to play 20-35) Arthur is at once wise, generous, compassionate and boyish – rather unsure of himself, yet an inspiration to others. Baritone (low A to Eb)
GUENEVERE (to play 18-25) A young, spirited girl, who is quite caught up in chivalry and the exciting
possibilities of a promising life. She loves Arthur but is very much thrown by the arrival of Lancelot – the start of the famous “love triangle.” Mezzo (low B to high #F)
LANCELOT (to play 20-35) An abundantly self-assured knight from France who is a passionate disciple of
Arthur and his Round Table. “The greatest knight in the world,” whose only weakness is his love for Guenevere. Baritone (low A to D)
KING PELLINORE (to play late 40’s-60) A wonderfully funny and stuffily “British” old knight – provides the most consistent comic relief in the play. Dedicated to Arthur. Very eccentric. Doubles as Merlin.
MORDRED (to play mid 20’s) A truly evil young man, who was “sired” by Arthur when the king was young and naïve. A thoroughly and fascinatingly unlikable fellow. Tenor

TOM OF WARWICK (age 8-12) A young boy.
