not all shows need an ensemble. theatre isnt there to let every one who wants to do a show in. if you are confident enough to be in an ensemble you should be confident enough to play a lead.

some of the best shows need no real ensemble

I Do, I Do
Romance / Romance
A Little night Music

when you have an ensemble you also run the risk of having a few weak links in the cast that may stand out like a sore thumb if you are desperate in casting.
not in every show mind you but soem shows people just dont want to do ensemble so you are stuck casting inexperienced people .

Plus, the lyrics in FANTASTICKS are a travesty. The music isn't much to write home about either (although they don't have to be in a show like this.)
