Full cast list for I Love the Knightlife
King Arthur: The undisputed King of Camelot who has more than a healthy infatuation
with Elvis. In fact everything he says and does is a tribute to Elvis Presley.
This character is very likeable, funny and must be able to sing!
Consider sharing this with multiple students.
Guinevere: The soon to be Queen of Camelot. She is a no nonsense leader who prefers
action rather than words and is not frightened to lead the way. Should be a strong singer.
Merlin: The old magician of Arthur’s Court is not as mysterious as everyone first thought
although when the going gets tough he can still pull a rabbit out of the hat.
Knights of the Round Table
Lancelot: The oldest and best knight of the order. Unfortunately he has been around so
long that he now tends to spend his life rambling about the “good old days”.
This is a great role for a staff member who doesn’t mind hamming it up.
Gawain: One of the smarter knights despite his problems with long division.
Gallahad: Referred to as “the pure” he is young and a big baby.
Bors: Outright dummy, deadhead and that’s being nice to him.
Bedevere: Quite sarcastic and free speaking until Morgan casts a spell that makes him stutter.
Percival: The chaperon of Sir Bors.
Apathy: As his name suggests, he couldn’t care less about anyone or anything.
Flatley: Based on the lead dancer from “Riverdance”. A real poser.
Kay: Arthur’s older brother who thankfully doesn’t sing.
Ladies of Honour
Clare: Innocent and gullible.
Marlee/Geller: Sisters who have but one brain to share between the two of them.
Uma: Guinevere’s right hand lady who is always willing to try things.
Morgan Le Fey: Evil Queen/Witch and half-brother of Arthur. Needs to be very nasty!
Trolls 1 & 2: They make Bors look brilliant.
Page: Likes blowing horn a lot and giving smart comments.
Compere: Master of Ceremonies for the “Dancing Competition”.
Larry Emblem: A TV show host.
Lawyer: Small role for someone who likes looking serious.
Narrator: Pops in and out throughout the story and likes playing tricks on others (could be shared into 6 roles).
Jack & Jill: The Two-Headed Knight will be joined for one scene. Need to be good friends.
Strange Man: Runs Customs Department. Must be senile and have a laugh to match.
Messenger: Just like a Dark Ages postman who mixes up his letters.
Limerick Knights: 5 Knights who speak in nothing but Limericks.
Elaine: A great dancer.
Ladies of Lake: Beautiful girls who must be able to dance and hold score cards.
Singlets: Backup singers and dancers for the King..
In addition to general chorus parts we also split the roles of Arthur, Narrator, Compere to cater for the large number of students who participated (over 100).
