Auditions: Monty Python’s “Spamalot”
Posted: Jan 14, 2021
The spring show of our 2021 Indoor Season at SCERA Center for the Arts is Monty Python’s “Spamalot,” which will play April 9-May 8, 2021 on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm. It will be directed by Michael Carrasco, with choreography by Shawn M. Herrera.
Auditions for ages 17 through adults will be held Tuesday, Feb. 3 or Wednesday, Feb. 4 from 7-9pm. Auditioners should prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. An accompanist or aux cord is available – please bring your music and have it cued or marked. Please, no CD’s. Callbacks, for those invited, will be held Saturday, February 6, and will include a dance/movement section. All roles are available. Masks and distancing are required in the building as you wait for your audition. You may remove your mask briefly to sing.
Auditions are done by appointment, and you can register online and sign up for a time at Casting Manager. If this is your first time using Casting Manager, you will be asked to create an account, and upload a resume and headshot if you have them. If you don’t have a resume or headshot, there is space where you can add in your education, training, experience, shows, etc. However, if you are new to theatre and the audition process, don’t be intimidated…we welcome talented first-timers! If you are more comfortable, you can also submit a video audition in Casting Manager.
Rehearsals will begin on February 8, and generally be held Monday-Friday evenings. A more detailed schedule will be provided once casting is final. Masks will be required at rehearsals and at all times backstage when you are not performing. Temperatures will be taken before each rehearsal and performance, and all other COVID health and safety protocols.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT hilariously retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The uproarious spoof, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will make you laugh out loud as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.” NOTE: We have chosen to produce the slightly reworked School Edition of the original Broadway script, which has been carefully edited for language and allows the director discretion to make the show more content friendly for schools and theatrical groups.
