Mark in "Rent"
Tobias Ragg in "Sweeney Todd"
Snoopy in "YAGMCB"
Radames/Mereb in "Aida"
Finch in "H2$"
Sid in "Take Me Along"
Lefou in "Beauty and the Beast"
Judas in "Jesus Christ Superstar"

*Plays*
Either of the boys in "Beautiful Thing"
Brick in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"
The title role in "Hamlet"
Samuel Savage in "The Curious Savage"

plus many, many others...

roles I'd like to revisit one day:
Seymour in "Little Shop of Horrors"
Tevye in "Fiddler on the Roof"
The Narrator in "Joseph ... Dreamcoat"
Jesus in "Godspell"
Marvin Hudgens in "Dark of the Moon"

Love,
Joshie

Motel in Fiddler

Luisa in The Fantasticks has been my dream since I was about 7. I can't really sing (that's a problem!) and since that role is so screechy and high, I know my voice could never handle it. I have the right look, but that's about it.

Anyone in "Little Shop of Horrors"
The Baker or Cinderella's Prince/Wolf in "Into the Woods"

Our school is doing "The Music Man" this year and I really really want to be Harold Hill, but since I'm a junior I won't get it and it'll go to a certain no-talent senior, even though I think I should get the part (as do some others). Just venting here...
