    I know this is posted constantly, but I thought maybe I could get some new ideas. 
    I have been the musical director at my school for 2 years now and ran successful runs of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" and "The Addams Family: School Edition". Any suggestions on where to go from here? 
    I have a small amount of guys and a bunch of girls. I have 3-4 awesome male leads and 3-5 awesome female leads. 4 of them are seniors. 
    Please nothing dance heavy, we struggle there! 
    Also my budget has been cut by $1000. I'm trying to get it back! Low budget would be great! 
    Thanks!

    Little Shop of Horrors needs 3 strong dudes (one for the plant voice), and 4 strong women (Audrey and the 3 doo-wop girls).  If you can find the plants nearby for inexpensive, then it's really not that expensive of a show after rights.  We managed to rent the plants we used for $200.  It's a major seller, too, in my experience, which may help with your budget woes.

    Little Shop of Horrors will be our Spring musical and the kids are already excited.
