Ok so my high school librarian knows what our musical is for the spring but can't tell us....heres what I know....or what she said rather....It has a SHORT TITLE and she had never heard of it and its not oklahoma. I've thought of a few

Follies
Cats
Camelot
Footloose
Cabaret
Chess
Swing
Aida
Annie
Assasins
Carousel
Chicago
Company
Dreamgirls
Evita
Fame
Falsettos
Honk
Grease
Hair
Mame
Oliver
Pippin
Ragtime
1776
Titanic
Suessical
Zorba

Funny Girl
Damn Yankees
Big River
Wonderful Town
Sweeney Todd
Miss Saigon
Bat Boy
Anything Goes
Show Boat
South Pacific
Sweet Charity

so can anyone think of any musicals that a high school might do with one or two words? i know most of those are shows a high school typcally do but just in case....
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

Well. Who hasn't heard of CATS, FOOTLOOSE, CABARET, ANNIE, CAROUSEL, CHICAGO, EVITA, FAME, GREASE, HAIR, OLIVER, FUNNY GIRL, DAMN YANKEES, ANYTHING GOES, SHOWBOAT, SOUTH PACIFIC, or SWEET CHARITY?

I would say that she's probably heard of all of those musicals. Plus, a short name would lead one to believe that it's one word - one short word.

I would rule out the following immediately:

Follies
Chess
Swing
Assassins
Company
Dreamgirls
Falsettos
Ragtime
1776

My money would be on:

Camelot
Aida
Honk
Mame
Pippin
Titanic
Seussical

i think pippin is the most likely high school production of a short title that someone might not have heard of.

Sorry, read the thread wrong!

You may also want to think about

GYPSY and CHICAGO as possibilities.

ONe of the stipulations is that this librarian hasn't heard of the show.

Good News and The wiz were both musicals that my highschool did that were really suprising.
