Post How did your school put it on?
After all, there aren't too many roles for boys... unless you count Warbucks staff ensemble. How many cast members did you have? What was your overall experience in it like?

A Wonderful Life - bankteller
Calamity Jane - ensemble
Fiddler on the Roof - ensemble
Mame - ensemble
Singin'' in the Rain - hairdresser/dancer/ensemble
Currently: The Sound of Music - Ursula

I once saw the production as "Andie," and all of the roles were gender-switched...

Actually, no, I didn't, but I can picture it all too easily.

I've seen a few productions, but they were community theatre so they could just cut out the boys.

The Corporal`s Widow in The Government Inspector


Twin #2 in Peter Pan, Milkmaid/Chorus in Oliver, Belinda in A Christmas Carol

I imagine with many high school theatre departments, a lack of male talent makes a show where you only need Warbucks, Rooster, and a few halfway-competent chorus members ideal.

Post First timer with School Production- need to find Annie pack
Hi, I'm a primary school teacher from Australia and am running the school production for the first time next year. I'd love to do Annie, however the company our school usually goes with has not got a package for it. Can anyone fill me in on where I can order the script/tracks etc?

Musical Theatre International (MTI). They have both the full version and a smaller Junior version which comes with performance tracks.
