I teach high school and this year we've got a really strong bunch of kids coming up and I want do something more legit... you know, not Grease or the Wizard of Oz- something different from what everyone does.
Problem is- we've done Once upon a Mattress, Fame, Fiddler on the Roof since this bunch as been at the school. PLUS- a lot of them were involved in school system wide productions of Aida and Les Miz, 3 schools in our area just did Millie, and I taught several of them at summer camp where we did Into the Woods.
We were considering Ragtime, but we don't know if we've got quite the right combo....
We've got 1 girl with a great range and quality who can sing anything. 2 with fantastic belting voices and one with a beautiful more operatic classical voice.
As far as guys go, we've got 3 awesome baritones and 2 amazing tenors.
We've got plenty of good choral singers to fill in an ensemble
I'm at my wits end- help!
