    Hi All,
    I am looking for some suggestions for a high energy ensemble show. Last year we did Newsies and the kids LOVED it. I am trying to find something similar this year. Currently I am exploring Crazy for You with my team.

    Any other thoughts/recommendations??
    Thank you.

    We had a lot of fun with Curtains a couple years ago - lots of roles and great ensemble numbers.

    Urinetown, maybe? Snuff That Girl, Run Freedom Run, and We're Not Sorry are a blast, and there's lot of other scenes/songs for the ensemble to be involved in.

    We did Seussical last year ... kids were hesitant at first but ultimately loved it. Lots of featured roles and the ensemble is in nearly the entire show. Also ... many years ago we did Annie Get Your Gun ...  lots of energy and many supporting roles.

    The ensemble for Hairspray is a lot of fun, and Mamma Mia is a real crowd pleaser. 

    Hope this helps.
