I know! Even if I went to an all white school, I would still be uber-excited about doing this show. I'm just jealous.

yea we have a great budget. We did Beauty and the Beast this year and we spent 40,000 and none of it was fundrasier! We also have the best music program on the east coast. so i think we could pull it off. we have with other shows that need black people.

Beauty and the Beast- Villager
Ragtime- Sarah''s Friend
Show Boat- Queenie

A local school in my area did Ragtime last year and they were an all-white school (one word: Farmers...) and they, somehow, made half their cast black. There was a BIG artical about it in the newspaper and someone wrote in attacking their school for doing the show. I didn't see it, but a friend of mine ushered for it and said it was amazing. Actually, a lot of people said that.

My high school did Ragtime without any black people and it was a HUGE success...people thought our teachers were crazy because they spent $50,000 on it but we ended up making $10,000 extra...It's not impossible

The show was ruined ( to me) because your teachers were morons. They should have picked another show. If you couldn't find black people than shouldn't have done it!
