Cast List:

Here's the casting break-down according to MTI, who licenses the show. Interesting that the Leading Player is described as male or female, I identify the role very strongly with Ben Vereen, but I guess women have played it too.

While Pippin was a Fosse show, and will require a bunch of very skilled dancers, this production is also looking for a strong singing chorus who will be "movers" rather than dancers. The musical score is by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell).

It's also interesting to see that Goodspeed is currently doing the show.

I was in the show almost 20 years ago and have quite fond memories of doing it. The score is really really fun to sing, and back then when I could carry off the Fosse-esque dancing that was fun too! These days I'd probably go for the granny role ;)

So, who's going to audition?
