If you're 11 you shouldn't be posting on these boards, if I recollect the rules that our mods so proudly represent and enforce.

As for your question, the children's roles are very small. Chances are you would not have an actual character name even. The only children that really gets to speak at all is the King's eldest son and Anna's son. You would get to do some ensemble stuff.

Main Role: Performer
The only one of the female children's roles that has lines is Princess Yin Yaowlak. All the children sing together (no solos).
Musical numbers the children are in are the March of the Siamese Children (where Anna meets the children); The Royal Bangkok Academy; and Getting to Know You.
They are also onstage for the Finale.

So I haven*t come to the theatre to hear about other people*s problems.
I*ve come to be taken out of myself, and preferably not put back again.
