  • 1.  Little Women Musical ensemble?

    Looking into Little Women as a high school show. Typically we have 30 cast members. Is there a way to incorporate an ensemble effectively?

    We just finished this show … for our main musical in the spring we normally have 40-50 kids … for Little Women we had 11 … so we ran it in the fall instead which is typically our smaller show.

    Every named character (with the exception of Mrs Kirk) really does need to sing very well and sing solo. The script does allow for an “ensemble” of ice skaters and ballroom dancers … but we felt that trying to keep a group like that occupied (and costumed) would be more work than it was worth.

    Best of luck whichever direction you go this spring !
