My friend is on the board of a local theater company and they have asked him to direct the show next summer. They are a theater dedicated to presenting quality theater to families and like to have shows with children in them.
He can't think of a good one to direct and the only ones that I can think of have been done in our area in the last few years and they are looking for something "newer". Not really newer as in copyright dates, but new to our area, that hasn't been done in a while.
Can you guys reply with and shows that you can think of that are good, that have a decent amount of childrens role, or even just a few main children but could have children in ensemble parts, and a good amount of roles for adults as well?
Here are the ones that he doesn't want to do:
Wizard of Oz
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown
Can you think of any that I can recommend?
