Families: This show is rated “G” for general audience and it is all about family. We are looking for several groups to be on stage as family units. The chorus meets only one night a week until the last few weeks prior to show. Then the chorus schedule will be increased with more days added each of those last few weeks and with Sundays being key days for full run-throughs. The last week prior to the show will be nightly rehearsals. If you ever wanted to be in a show with your children or grandchildren, now is the time.

Dancers:  4-5 young men (ages 14-18) that are ready to learn to dance and lift girls. Lyrical training is a plus, but not required; we will train you.  4-5 girls (ages 12-18) that have lyrical training. If you are not a dancer, we will still have a spot for you.

Children: 7 girls and 7 boys (ages 5-14) for Indians/Marching band

Men: 5 men for the opening train scene; 4 men for quartet

Women: 4-5 women as the mayor’s wife’s cohorts for Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little, Eulalie’s Ballet, and Ice Cream Sociable
