Post Question....
Well my school musical this year is Anything Goes. I am a senior and have always loved musical theater but has always been "nervous" to get up and sing my heart out but this year i am going to do it. See i really wanted Reno, (i am an mezzo alto/ soprano) but there is a girl who basically has that part as her own. So who is left that i really like is Bonnie and Hope. i would really like Hope but I dont really know alot about her character. Like is she a big character? How many songs does she have? Does she dance? The same goes for Bonnie, though I know she dances, but how big is her part? Bigger than Hopes? How many songs does she sing? Thank you all so much for any help you could give!

Bonnie has a smaller part than Hope, but Bonnie's a lto mroe fun. Hope's pretty much, as my friend playing her dwescribed, "the ingenue of all ingenues". If you like character/dance roles, go for Bonnie.

Bonnie has two songs pretty much to herself, "Heaven Hop" and "Let's Step Out", both are dance intensive, but are also really fun character songs. Hope actually doesn't have too much singing, Reno's really the narrator of the musical. Hope has two duets "All Through the Night" (plus Reprise) and "It's Delovely" with Billy, but that's about it. So I'd actually argue that Bonnie has more singing and dancing despite the fact she's only on stage a fraction of the time.
