I'm trying to influence my director to choose either Curtains or Funny Girl next year, or (if rights are available) Edwin Drood. I've heard rumors of The Sound Of Music...don't want to do that one!

The Real Miss Lacus - Never heard of Bernarda Alba, I'll have to check it out!

BoomerangTiger - Peter Pan sounds like fun! I don't know if we have the talent for Dreamgirls, but I'll suggest both anyway.

Thanks everyone!

Nunsense. Iirc it's an all female cast.
How about Peter Pan or Dreamgirls? We did Peter Pan at my school and we had girls in the lost boys I know cause I was in the chorus. Also Peter needs to be a girl because the character needs a high singing voice. The only boys who are really needed are Captain Hook, (Mr Darling plays Captain Hook as well it is a double casted roll) Michael, John and the Indian chief.. You could have all the pirates as women. Hope this helps!

Try Thoroughly Modern Millie. There's like 4 male leads and most of the 'group' men's stuff (like at the beginning of the title song) can be switched to girl's parts.

hahaha I was going to suggest that

You could do something that has a mostly male cast like Pirates of Penzance--but instead of men playing all the pirates all the women play the pirates and reverse roles with men. THAT would be comedic--switch up gender roles would be very creative--but who knows, your school might be against that.
Xanadu Perhaps?

if you can get enough guys (maybe at least 5) Then you can do Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. it's not a musical but my school did it with just just 4 guys and it was a hit.

Well, this suggestion may be a bit on the late side, but you could do Anything Goes.
It's not too heavily male cast, and if ten of your gents will be auditioning, you'll have enough!
Hope this helps. c:


Oh how I would love to do Anything Goes! It was recently done around here, but I don't think that would really be too much of an issue. We definitely have the dancers for it.

Millie was actually one of my first suggestions to the director - it was turned down. sad

I really appreciate the suggestions, everyone. The show should be announced within the next few days...I'll let you know what it happens to be! If you'd like, feel free to keep the ideas coming. I can still try and influence the decision a bit smile
