Re: Choose my musicals time!
I'm not all that familiar with it, but for the Jr. high one, for some reason The Drowsy Chaperone popped into my head. Or what about The Music Man? (If you have a quirky boy who can pull off Harold Hill)
What about HONK! for the community theater show? you can have a cast of pretty much any size, depending on if you want to double parts or not, and there are lots of good little bits for women and Ida sounds great for your 20-something-but-can-play-older woman. the teenage girl who can play older and dances can be Penny, the young 20's guy can be Ugly... there are lots of cameo parts and solos and songs for lots of people. you just also need 4 teens or kids to be the ducklings.
EDIT- actually, the more I think about it, I really think you should look into this show! If you're not familiar with it, don't let the "animals" part of it scare you. Costumes are usually just suggestive of a kind of animal. the music is beautiful, there are no BIG "dance" numbers, although there is a tango between two characters and the frog number at the end is usually more of a dance number. We had "fish" on rollerblades and the ducks "swimming" on scooters. Everyone loved this show when I did it about 10 years ago.http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t277 ... eggsit.jpg
