Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd is my #1 dream role, so definitely belongs in this thread.

Others: Baker or Jack in ITW.

Jack in Into the Woods. Not only is it my dream Sondheim role, but also my dream role in general.

So many, but I'll only give a couple that popped into my head-

Dot- SitPwG
Balladeer- Assassins (yes, a man, but I just love that role)
Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme- Assassins
Johanna- Sweeney Todd

countless others

In order.

1. Anne Egerman or Fredrika Armfeldt (A Little Night Music)
2. Joanne, Sarah, or Amy (Company)
3. Johanna (Sweeney Todd)
4. Cinderella or the Witch (Into the Woods)
5. Dot (Sunday in the Park With George)

Something from Follies will likely get added to this list when I am at a better age for the roles.

Petra is perfectly in my vocal and acting range, but I'm not sure I could do it full justice at this point. Maybe when I get more experience! It is a great part.

Also, I was under the impression that Fredrika is around the same age as Anne, maybe a little younger...and I've seen professional productions where Fredrika was played by an actress in her 20s.
