ROLES OPEN FOR CASTING IN FEB 2016
Please note that these are selected roles, and not the entire character list, as a few roles are already cast.
Main speaking roles open for casting (there will be smaller "two or three line" roles as well, for warriors, courtiers, villagers, which are not listed.)
Anyone aged under 16, must be accompanied at all castings, rehearsals, and filming/ performances, by a parent or legal guardian.
Most of the ladies will be involved in fight/ battle scenes, fighting alongside the men, especially in the Saxon raids, and at Camlann, and mandatory combat training will take place in Brixham at the community centre for all relevant successful cast. If you have a reason that this would not be possible, please email us to discuss first. email@example.com

well with whom, in both acting and appearance. All warrior characters need to have the physical
