Hey there!

Well, this is truely a vehicle musical centered on Harold Hill. Marian's part almost seems small compared to his!

Zaneeta doesn't have a song (with solos), she's usually a featured dancer and she has pretty minimal lines. It's a fun part, but not big by any means.

The biggest parts (to memory) are:

Harold
Marian
Marcellus
Mrs. Paroo
Mayor Shin

Eulalie Shin and Zaneeta are probably the next biggest female parts. But they are pretty small comparatively. Amarylys sings with Marian in a duet, so she might even have a bigger part than Zaneeta.
