MTI Show Support: casting for Peter Pan Jr.I'd like to do Peter Pan Jr, but I'm not sure it fits the peculiar business model of my current school. Here's the way the school's department is set up. The Production class (which kids audition to get into) play the leads, and they rehearse in class. A less advanced "JV" class plays one chorus, and rehearses in class. Then there are open auditions for another chorus, and they rehearse after school. For example, this year we did Willy Wonka Jr, and my Production class played all the speaking roles. The kids in the JV class were Oompa Loompas, and the open audition kids were the Kids Chorus. It is an expectation here that the JV class will have more stage time and more to do than the other chorus, so I gave them the Oompa Loompas which have four songs, as opposed to the Kids Chorus which has two. First question: Weird, right? I've never seen a school set up quite like this, and I'm having trouble finding shows that have two choruses, one of which is bigger and more important than the other. Second question: Will Peter Pan Jr. fit this business model? I worry that there are too many choruses (pirates, Lost Boys, indians, mermaids). Also, I worry that the choruses are too ingrained in the script to rehearse separately. Like, it was easy to rehearse the Oompa Loompas in a different class than my Wonka because the Oompa Loompa songs stand alone. But is it possible to have the pirates in a different class than my Captain Hook, or the Lost Boys in a different class than my Peter Pan? Third question: Are there other Junior shows that fit into this strange business model?
