I became involved in my high school’s drama club during my freshman year, and let me tell you, what a fantastic experience it was! Being involved with drama, it made sense to do musicals, and we did one during the spring of each school year. We never really got the chance to do a performance of Grease, Footloose, or West Side Story because the cast number has always been pretty small. As far as I know, the musicals my school has done so far are Oklahoma! (done before I arrived at the school), How to Succeed in Business without really Trying (freshman year), *Into the Woods *(sophomore year), Cinderella (junior year), and Little Shop of Horrors (senior year).
Since I’m leaning toward a major in musical theatre right now, I thought I’d ask: does anyone else like watching musicals or listening to the songs? If so, what are your favorites?
I think as far as musicals themselves go, my favorites are:
- Little Shop of Horrors
- Into the Woods
- The Sound of Music
And my favorite songs include:
- “Defying Gravity” from Wicked
- “Almost Paradise” from Footloose
- “Grow for Me” from Little Shop of Horrors
