Post fitting for an all-girls school?
Hi, I'm currently in the process of scouring musicals day and night in hopes of finding one to put on for an annual student directed musical. The only problem is that this will take place at an all-girls school, which means there should be a fair amount of female roles. I know Anything Goes very well, and that as far as lead female roles go, there are only about three. I was just wondering if anyone could offer any insight as to whether I should consider this musical or if anyone has any ideas. All the musicals I seem to find have an abundance of male parts and very few female roles. Any help is appreciated!

Yeah, ANYTHING GOES is pretty much just Reno, Hope, Bonnie/Erma and Mrs. Harcourt. There are angels and passengers too, but only the 4 "leads." Have you tried GODSPELL? The script calls for 5 men and 5 women, but I know it's been done with girls as male characters before. ONCE UPON A MATTRESS could be a good deal for you, too. The minstrel and jester can be girls, and that would give you 5 female leads and several cameos too.

I think Guys and Dolls would be fun to do with an all-female cast, as it's mostly male, and having an all-female cast would just enhance it's tongue-in-cheekiness. What about Fiddler on the Roof? The thought of a female Tevye has always intruiged me :P
