What was the curtain call music for each musical you were in? Here's my list:

-Once Upon a Mattress: Normandy (everyone up to Fred's bow) and Happily Ever After (Fred's and group bow)
-Bye Bye Birdie: Lot of Livin to Do (it was originally Rosie, but our director had a fit and changed it)
-Gypsy: Some People (everyone up to June) and You'll Never Get Away From Me (June, Gimmick Girls, Herbie, Louise, Rose, and group bow)
-King & I: Whistle a Happy Tune (everyone up to Anna and King) and Shall
We Dance (Anna, King, and group bow). Then the whole cast sang Getting to Know You.

Most of these I directed/stage managed, but here we go...

Grease: "We Go Together"
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown x2: "Curtain Call"
Sweeney Todd: I.. honestly don't remember!
tick, tick... BOOM!: "30/90"
The Spitfire Grill: "Shoot the Moon"/
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat: "Finale/Give Me My Colored Coat"
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas: "Pissant Country Place"
It's a Wonderful Life: Medley.. started with "Do You Want to Dance With Me?" then went to "It's a Wonderful Life", then "That's George Bailey".
Frankenstein: "Birth to My Creation"

I think that was it. :)

Almost every musical has bow/exit music at the end of the score. It's pretty straightforward.

Kind of my thoughts. For the plays I've been involved in we've used appropriate music for the time/location. I don't remember the exact songs.

I'm aware of that; I'm asking for specifics (what songs were played in individual shows).

Reefer Madness: "Little Mary Sunshine", and only because it said so in the script. I think it was a mistake.

Annie: "Tomorrow" (I think) for bows music, with a medley for exit music

Oliver!: "Consider Yourself" (if I remember right - and after we had all taken our bows we sang a reprise); I think we also had a medley for the exit music in this show

Fiddler on the Roof: "Tradition" (bows music), "To Life" (exit music)

The Pirates of Penzance: none

I'm pretty sure our Hello, Dolly! bows music will just be "Hello, Dolly!," but we haven't gotten to that point yet.

UPDATE: We did use "Hello, Dolly!" for our curtain call music.

I like to revive this thread every couple of years since we've all done shows since the last post.
