Post Re: Top 5 Dream Roles Revisited :)
I'm lucky enough to have played a couple of mine already. Though I'd love to revisit the Narrator in Joseph again now that my voice has matured a little more. I was pretty young when I did it the first time around. But...

Eliza : My Fair Lady
Madame Giry : Phantom
Mrs. Lovett : Sweeney Todd
Mimi / Joanne : Rent - Possibly quite unlikely, since I'm abut the palest person you will ever meet.
Florence : Chess - Almost got to do this once, but it was cancelled. :(

I probably don't have a chance at any of these roles, but oh well

The Witch/Little Red/The Baker's Wife- Into The Woods
Maureen- Rent
Anybodys- West Side Story
Eponine/Madame Thenardier- Les Miserables
Fanny- Funny Girl
Pretty much any female role in Grease or Spring Awakening

Top 5 Dream Roles that I haven't yet played:

Horton the Elephant - Seussical the Musical
Emmett - Legally Blonde
Princeton - Avenue Q
Jack - Into the Woods
Peter or Jason - Bare

If I hadn't already played the following, this list would be different:
Mark Cohen - RENT
Leaf Coneybear - Spelling Bee
Prince Dauntless - Once Upon a Mattress.

I'd probably replace Emmett, Jack, and Princeton to create my ultimate dream list if I hadn't played those roles already.

Reviving this again...
Okay so my list is pretty stereotypical. Live with it.

Natalie - Next to Normal (but I have less than ten years)
Mimi/Maureen - RENT (Mimi's not so likely, as I'm Caucasian and not exactly petite/curvaceous)
Diana - Next to Normal (when I'm older-ish)
Eponine/Fantine/Cosette/Factory Bitch - Les Miserables (I just think FB would be fun to play. I'd frankly be thrilled to even be in Les Mis.)
Mme. Giry - PotO (I used to want Christine. That's NOT happening.)
Ariel/Rusty - Footloose. (Not really on the "dream role" side, but my school's doing it and I wish I had a bigger part is all.)

Sorry for double posting, but I can't figure out how to edit.
I can't believe I left out the Wicked ones. Elphaba, G(a)linda, and/or Nessa.

EDIT: Elizabeth, If/Then (I've only heard the soundtrack, but I love it, and I was able to follow the storylines with a little help from Wikipedia :) )
Wendla, Ilse or Martha, Spring Awakening
I know there's another one but I'm pretty brain-dead right now :-k

Tiny hard-to-read Edit button right next to the tiny hard-to-read Quote button in the upper right hand side corner of your post. ;) Glad to help!
