My school just did Anything Goes this year. I played Billy. It was really fun. We did the version with Bonnie and I think that one is much better the the other version. Also... any comments on these shows:

Pippin
The Wiz
Thouroughly Modern Millie

If you could post back with your comments that would be great

Into the Woods is perfect if you want lots of great roles, but it doesn't have a chorus (though I've seen school productions where one has been added). R/H Cinderella is a truly delightful show with lots of parts (especially for girls, which is good for shows) and a fun chorus with lots of SATB singing.

About Anything Goes: Elisha Whitney needs a British accent, but that's about it.

Okay, I goofed. It's Evelyn Oakleigh who needs the accent, not Elisha Whitney. The Phantom apologizes...

This could be a bit late, but Once Upon A Mattress could be a great school musical. We did it this past year and it's definately not a kid's musical if you have the regular version, there's also a school version but that's not as much fun (i.e. no pregnant, non-married women running around} It was a lot of fun but we had to cut a lot of the parts and still double up on roles since we had about 10 people in theatre this year. I myself had to play one role and then change while running across the back of the stage behind the backdrop to come out on the stage in time for the big musical number. I had roughly 12 seconds.
