Post does reno have to be tall?!
hi! i'm going to be trying out for anything goes, but i'm not reallly that tall and i'm wondering if that's a problem in order to be reno? like does she have to be taller than her angels. like would it look weird otherwise, or does it not matter?

It shouldn't really matter. All of us Angels were on the tall side and our Reno was average.

P.S. It also depends on your shoes. :wink:

Post Reno does not have to be tall.
believe me, My school is doing the show right now and I play Evelyn, I'm on the shorter side, and my Reno's even shorter, and really, in the end, it all depends on what the director wants.

yea, it really doesn't matter.

we started rehearsals for A.G. two weeks ago at school.
our reno happens to be 6 feet and some odd inches with the 3 inch charactrer shoes she's wearing.
here's a random pic of her from teen. (she's a model. lol)

No...Patti Lupone's like five two.
If you were abnormally, especially compared to your colleagues, then maybe it would be a problem.

it has nothing to do with the fact that she was in a print ad.

it was between two girls.
she was the right one for the role.
that is how shows are supposed to be cast, correct?

Well usually people who model sometimes also act aswell, I mean modeling requires acting so it kind of makes sense.

precisely.
and, of course she has the sex appeal that is integral to the character.

and she's been dancing for 16 years.
her mom owns the top local dance studio.

this certainly was no gag casting.

and by no means is she just a "teen model."
she's done plenty of high fashion.
she's been in countless catalogs and magazines.
television commercials, martha stewart's show, runway shows, online shops. etc.
just in her defense.

NO. I'll be playing Reno in May, and I'm barely 5 ft. 1 in. All of the Angels are taller than me, and the Evelyn they cast is almost 6 ft. XD
