I feel very lucky to be on the SOM Asia tour, but I'm not even short enough for the Annie orphan swing! (That's not really a good role for me anyway, vocally, so that's ok.) On the other side of the matter, I get sad when an adult call has a height minimum, like 5'4" for the adult ensemble in Annie! People in theatre tell me that I have so many options for roles, but I don't really -- only in an unusual situation where they need an adult who looks young/small! But as someone else posted, I understand the limitations and I have no problem playing children, teens, fairies, elves ... and so on.
