This new musical boasts favorite tunes from “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings”, as well as brand new tunes by the Oscar and Grammy Award winner and master melodist, Stephen Schwartz. Brundage Park Playhouse is proud to present this musical as part of our 2014 Season.
|Fairies in Training: Vocal Range G3 – E5|
Rosa, Viola & Arancia are sweet and kind. Expressive observers.They sing as a group, often alongside the Blue Fairy.
Sue is a fairy in training who marches to the beat of her own drum. She isn’t your typical fairy, as sweetness isn’t in her nature. A contrast to Rosa, Viola and Arancia, although vocally she should blend in.
The Blue Fairy is convinced of her own perfection and does not like having it called into question. Good comedic instincts and a solid singing voice. This role does not require excessive dancing.
