    Show summary:
    This is not your father’s Camelot!
    What we’ve got here is a broad farce about a modern day American man who finds himself transported to Sixth Century England where royalty, knights, ladies of the court, an all-too-perky page, and a particularly dastardly wizard all come together in a story about political intrigue in the Court of King Arthur.  How high are the stakes?  Well, the losers could get burned at them.

    This is a costume comedy with larger than life characters that will all be played for big laughs.

    Roles:

    Hank Bennett:
    Engineering genius trying to bring a touch of modern times to the Dark Ages.
    King Arthur: Noble spirited and grandiose, but befuddled and henpecked.
    Queen Guenever: Quick tempered and sharp tongued.
    Merlin: Charlatan wizard with a bloodthirsty streak.
    Sir Sagramor: Hugely comic knight because of his huge degree of stupidity.
    Clarence: Teenage page to the knights of the court, and confidant to Hank. (Role might be cast with a female.)
    Elaine: Feisty spitfire of a woman, with the hots for Clarence.
    Sir Launcelot: The Romeo of the Court, and starting fullback.  (Yeah, you heard me!)
    Queen Morgan Le Fay: Diabolical and avaricious sister of King Arthur.
    Sandy: Woman on a mission; desperate and clingy…in a most dramatic way.
