How many are in the cast of the play "South Pacific"?
I tried out for my school's springtime musical. 20 people (including me) made it back for callbacks. Those 20 are the only ones being considered for roles- no one that will be in the play got an "automatic pass" and didn't have to go to callbacks.
I wanted a small part. I mainly want to dance in it.
The problem is, I think I flubbed up the acting portion a lot at callbacks, though.
My question is this: For the 11 girls and 9 guys that made it through to callbacks, how many will get roles?
I know we are keeping the original play, so all the main characters, medium characters, and small characters. This includes all the nurses and sailors. How many are in the cast? (and it would be extremely helpful to say the actual roles too, not only a number.)
