I've had the pleasure to play almost all of my dream roles so I'm very fortunate in that regard. Saddly with my leaving the business there will be some on this list that will probably go unfulfilled:

1) The Baker-Into the Woods (will be checking this one off the list later this summer)

2) Dan Goodman-Next to Normal
3) John Adams-1776
4) Uncle Ernie-The Who's Tommy
5) Leading Player-Pippin

Mother in Ragtime

Fantine in Les Mis
Amalia in She Loves Me

Eliza Doolittle - My Fair Lady
Belle - Beauty and the Beast
Cinderella - Into the Woods
Maria - West Side Story
Cathy - The Last 5 Years

At least, these are roles I could feasibly play one day at the correct age haha. But Eliza really is my dream role. God I hope I can play her someday, even if it's for the tiniest theater group in the world and only 3 people come see the show.

1.Ternardier/Valjean/Javert- Les Mis
2. Mark/Roger- RENT
3. Mr. McAfee Bye Bye birdie (done this one before, love to do it for an extended period of time)
4. Prof. Higgins- My Fair Lady
5. Mr. Mayor/Cat/Horton-Suessical

Fairly pedestrian picks, in my opinion, but then again, I've never really listened to MT all that much. (my #1 pick would be eat Loaf's character in Bat Out of Hell, but it's not on the west end yet, nor even in previews)

Since one can never have too many dream roles, I thought of five more
Ariel - Footloose
Fran - Promises, Promises
Ruth - Wonderful Town
Gertrude McFuzz - Seussical
Nadia - Bare: A Pop Opera (probably won't be performed anywhere near me anytime soon but if it is, I'd love the chance to play her)

Also, I'd be up for being the Witch in the MdN ItW if it sees the light of day.

1. Cat In The Hat - Seussical. So much. It looks really fun to do (well, the characters defining trait is having fun, in my eyes) and you get to improvise with an audience. If my school doesn't end up doing Seussical this year after all (or if I don't get the part), there may be a few 'accidents'...

2. Thenardier - Les Mis

3. Gaston - Beauty And The Beast. Haven't got the operatic booming singing voice for him though, so Lefou would be cool as well.

4. The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz - Wicked

5. Fagin - Oliver. I was Mr Sowerberry in Oliver, which was great and well received and what gave me the theatre bug, but looking back I realised I should've auditioned for Fagin rather than Bill Sykes. I now know that I can't do angry intimidating characters

Previous Roles:
Mr Sowerberry - 'Oliver!'
Barman - 'Boogie Nights'
Hatter - Alice Panto
General Genghis Khan Schmitz - 'Seussical'
Priest - 'Our House'

Dream Roles: Cat in the Hat - 'Seussical', Thenardiér - 'Les Mis'
