Post HELP! I need to find a show for my theater group!
My community theater group (actors: ages 14 - 24) has no permanent home; our first two seasons, we performed in an elementary school cafeteria that we somehow transformed into a theater. Last summer, we moved to a larger space where we will again perform next July. My problem is that we have a relatively small stage (it's actually deep with the extensions we've built on but not as wide as I'd like) - more probelamtic than the stage itself is the lack of wing space. Last summer we did GREASE; I'm trying to find a musical with a cast of between 25 and 30 and preferably a fairly simple set. If we hadn't just done GODSPELL, it would be a great choice for this space. Any suggestions? I'm getting desperate.....

Try posting this in a section of the forum that goes better with the topic that you're discussing. You're not really going to find any help in the Performance Announcements section of the forum. :)

I would suggest posting something in The Green Room section of the forum. That's a place where directors and backstage people would discuss their questions/problems.

Well in cats you only have to worry about one set, but thats has to be fairly advanced, not to mention some hefty dancing capabalies among the cast. Somehow My fair lady jumps me as doable but I am not sure if thats based on real life facts or not... Remember that if you really strive for it most musical sets could be amazingly simpliefied if you put some creative mind into the set designs.

Oh, Mamma Mia!s set is also fairly simple but I dont know if its has been realesed yet.

I agree with The Music Man, or maybe Annie?
