Sky (Male, 20-30) Sophie’s fiancé; a former stockbroker who moved to the island in a young version of a mid-life crisis. He is older than Sophie, but smitten by her exotic charm.

Reveler #1, Squire Dap, Mordred (Male, 20-30) The illegitimate son of Arthur, Mordred is bound to destroy his kingdom. A truly evil young man, who was “sired” by Arthur when the knight was young and naïve. He is a thoroughly and fascinatingly unlikeable fellow.

He desires to rule fairly and create a land where justice and honor are held in high esteem. An idealistic, compassionate, boyish and generous young King. He tends to be unsure of himself, but serves as a huge inspiration to others and strives to lead based on honor and chivalry. (Vocal range top: Eb4 Vocal range bottom: A2)
Reveler #7, Guenevere (Female, 20-35) A young, beautiful and spirited young woman who’s soon to be queen. She is caught up in chivalry and the exciting possibilities of a promising life. She does not want to marry Arthur at first, but when she meets him and sees the beauty in Camelot she falls in love. She is devoted to Arthur and supports his causes. She is suddenly thrown with the arrival of Lancelot, which starts the famous love triangle between herself, him and Arthur. (Vocal range top: A5 Vocal range bottom: B3)
Reveler #8, Lancelot (Male, 20-35) An abundantly self-assured knight from France and a skilled warrior. Lancelot comes to be a Knight of the Round Table. He is extremely pious and not particularly well liked by anyone except Arthur. He is a passionate disciple of Arthur and his Round Table. He is “The Greatest Knight in the World,” whose only weakness is his love for Guenevere. He is very used to excelling at everything. (Vocal range top: B4 Vocal range bottom: A2)

Director: David Arisco
Hercule Poirot (Male, 55-65) a famous Belgian detective; a “Big” personality; authoritative, witty, charismatic and slightly pompous; driven to find the answers, good or bad, with a strong moral sense; very aware of his ability and his well deserved reputation.
Monsieur Bouc (Male, 30-59) a Belgian man of good humor; playful, proud, generous; a predilection for grandeur; a whirlwind of energy; must be an excellent comedian.
Mary Debenham (Female, 30-39) an English beauty; a governess, capable yet romantic; a sadness around her eyes and a hardnessa bout her person.
Hector MacQueen (Male. 30-40) tightly wound, edgy and nervous; he seems to always be on the verge of falling apart or coming unwound. American.
Michel the Conductor/Head Waiter (Male, 35-59) one actor will play two roles; Michel: a good-looking Frenchman, about 40, a quiet, almost grave sense of humor; unfailingly polite; Head Waiter: a Turkish waiter, snooty, smooth; must have great comic timing.
Princess Dragomiroff (Female, 60-79) a Russian dowager; very formal, a sweeping, impressive presence; imperial, impatient.
Greta Ohlsson (Female, 20-69) inherently odd, and very devout Swedish woman; a frightened, sheeplike quality; must be an excellent comedienne with an impeccable Swedish accent.
Countess Andrenyi (Female, 20-39) brilliantly beautiful, like something out of a fairytale; impeccably put together, with a warmth that wins over everyone she meets; her delicacy belies a steely edge: she is no wilting flower; Hungarian accent.
Helen Hubbard (Female, 40-65) loud, in need of constant attention. Espouses Western ideals. A comedy of the “American woman.”
