Post Ideas for benefit performance thing?
My school's GSA wants to do a benefit performance to raise money for the Trevor Project and other LGBT charities, but no one has any idea. I'm the president of it and they are pressuring me to come up with something. We have 8 girls and 2 guys and they all really want to do something with music... Anyone have any ideas? Any at all?

Current: None right now.
Marquis 1, Poet, Cadet - Cyrano de Bergerac
Ryan - High School Musical
Lt. Brannigan - Guys and Dolls Jr.
Cowardly Lion - The Wizard of Oz, 2x
And others

You could use numbers from Rent and Bare: A Pop Opera in a variety musical performance that featured every member of the group. Also, add songs that the group enjoys from their favorite musicals and you have a show.

You can also have an auction that the audience can participate in during intermission/before or after the performance by asking companies for free stuff and that money can also go to your cause.

Look up the musical reveiw Make Me A Song:the songs of William Finn. It's got a boatload of womans songs that can be easily divided up, and plenty of guys songs and a few group numbers.

Sondheim revue? Stuff from good musicals?

Do you know how great my life is...saving lives and loving you..
