What age group are you working with? How large of a cast size are you looking at? Are these people strong vocally as well as acting and dancing ability?

The first show that popped into my head may not be appropriate for your needs but it was Chicago: 2 men-Billy Flynn, Amos Hart; 3 women- Roxie Hart, Velma Kelly and Mama Morton.

I'll let you know what else I can come up with.

Sorry for being brief. Our cast has an age range from 8-18. We have a cast of about 35. All of the cast is very capible and talented. Most have dance vocal and theatre training. The only problem with Chicago is I don't feel that it is appropriate for some of our younger cast members and also there aren't that many younger roles. Our two strong males are 15 and 16. Both of our leading laddies are 16. I am looking for a show with many featured female parts and also with some parts for our younger children. The only idea I have so far is Seussical. Thanks again for your help.

I was merely trying to accommodate the two boys and three girls aspect. I had a pretty good feeling that Chicago wouldn't work other than in that respect. I think Seussical is a great choice. When I did that show we had over 50 people in it, which on stage at times seemed like too many, however over 200 auditioned, so they tried to keep as many as possible. The great thing is that the Cat in the Hat can be either male or female, plus I've seen companies use a girl for JoJo. We also had 3 male and 3 female Wickershams. So many roles are doubled/tripled so it keeps everyone busy. I was a who/fish/and skater/juggler. I almost always had something to do. SO if you want a show that keeps everyone busy this is it :D

There are always staple shows like The Wizard of Oz, The Music Man, Bye Bye Birdie, & pretty much any Rodgers and Hammerstein show is kid friendly.

Have fun picking a show!

This link should be helpful. Under Shows - it lists all characters, with descriptions.
Good luck!
