Young@Part® Edition Adapted by Marc Tumminelli
Young@Part® Edition originally produced at Broadway Workshop in New York City.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this middle school adaptation of MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT 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 outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight casts and audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”
MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT (young@part) is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide, 1180 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 640, New York, NY 10036. www.theatricalrights.com

Practice this part of the script (called a side). You decide which character you’d like to be.
On audition day:
Arrive at the theatre 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time.
Check in at the table in the lobby. Hand in a headshot labeled with your name (photocopy of a casual picture is fine) or have your picture taken.
When your name is called, you will go into the theatre to sing about 1 minute of your prepared song. Next, you’ll read from the script using the side provided. You get to decide which character you’ll be. A director or volunteer will read the parts of the other characters.
If you can’t make it to auditions at the theatre, you can send a video instead. For your video, state your name, sing about 1 minute of your prepared song, and read the side from the script. You can read all of the parts yourself or read for just one character and ask someone at home to read the parts of the other characters. Email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9:00 pm on Tuesday, September 13th. Include your full name and BWTC AUDITION in the subject line of the email and send it to email@example.com.
The cast list will be posted on this audition page by 11:00 pm on Thursday, September 15th. Rehearsals begin on Monday, September 19th.
