Post HELP! I need to find a show for my theater group!
My community theater group (actors: ages 14 - 24) has no permanent home; our first two seasons, we performed in an elementary school cafeteria that we somehow transformed into a theater. Last summer, we moved to a larger space where we will again perform next July. My problem is that we have a relatively small stage (it's actually deep with the extensions we've built on but not as wide as I'd like) - more probelamtic than the stage itself is the lack of wing space. Last summer we did GREASE; I'm trying to find a musical with a cast of between 25 and 30 and preferably a fairly simple set. If we hadn't just done GODSPELL, it would be a great choice for this space. Any suggestions? I'm getting desperate.....

Fiddler on the Roof?

A lot of good shows with simple sets unfortunately are also written for small casts. If your cast didn't have to be so large, I might recommend:

She Loves Me
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
The Fantasticks

It would help to know just how simple your sets have to be. That would narrow things down some.

The King and I or South Pacific.

I saw The King and I done with a fairly simple set and it worked.
