It states that Xanadu JR. needs 38 cast members. I will be limited to around 20 students for our musical this year. Is this possible with this musical? Thank you, Melanie Parks

Hello Melanie - There is nothing in your contract that states you must cast 38 students.  Although the cast calls for 38, I don't believe there are 38 proper speaking/singing roles.  Please keep in mind though, that you will not be permitted to change the script in any way.  This includes changing character names or redistributing lines.  However, one student could play mutliple roles.  If you have more questions about specifics, please reach out to your account representative.
