Post Choosing A Show For A Fundraiser
During my senior year, I will be participating in one of those charity pageant things where it's less about who's the prettiest and more about who raises the most money for charity. We have a whole year to fundraise in various ways before the actual pageant. Anyway, one of my ideas was to get some of the theater kids at my school together and put on a musical, with me directing.

These are my requirements for shows

It has to be not very technically demanding (like not Wicked or Little Shop Of Horrors)
It has to be family-friendly
It has to have a medium-sized cast
It has to have a cast all potentially playable by teenagers (no children and no adult roles that are hard for teens to pull off e.g. Tevye , Sweeney Todd or Diana Goodman )
It can't be a really dance-heavy show like Cats or Thoroughly Modern Millie
It can't be any of the shows our school has recently done which (as I've stated many times on this forum) are Footloose, The Music Man, Into The Woods, Anything Goes, Little Shop Of Horrors, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown and Guys And Dolls

So, what shows would fit my requirements?

Too much of a star vehicle for one child actor. I need something that doesn't focus too much on any one role.

Birdie seems to fit the bill.

Not sure if you'd be interested in doing a fairly new musical, but I think my show, which is a spy-themed musical comedy, might fit the bill given the criteria you listed. It's a spy-themed musical comedy. You can learn more about it at http://www.sympathyjones.com. It's licensed through Playscripts (http://www.playscripts.com/play.php3?playid=2242).
