Richard Lionheart, their oldest son – age 26
Geoffrey, their middle son – age 24
John, their youngest son – age 16

Philip Capet, King of France – age 17
The ages shown are those set forth in the script and are not set in stone. This is an ensemble cast and members will be selected with regard to their relation to each other.
As in all IPAL production, these auditions are completely open and do not require any special preparation. Questions can be directed to the director (Mac Stearns) by calling the theater at (337) 364-6114 and leaving word.
