Top 20 Dream Roles For Musical Theatre
Personal Image

As any theatre kid does, I have a list of roles I would love to play. Some of them may be completely unattainable, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Judy Bernly

"9 to 5"

"Judy Bernly, please hold."

Maria Rainer

"The Sound of Music"

"Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens. ..."

Liesl von Trapp

"The Sound of Music"

"I'm Liesl. I'm sixteen years old and I don't need a governess."

Katherine "Plumber" Pulitzer


"I have something to believe in, now that I know you believe in me."

The Baker's Wife

"Into the Woods"

"We can't do this, you have a princess. And I ... have a ... a baker."

Grainne "Grace" O'Malley

"The Pirate Queen"

"Am I to be just woman? No. Not I!"

Elle Woods

"Legally Blonde"

"Bend and snap!"


"Legally Blonde"

"And if your Irish boy tires of you, you're allowed to shoot him in the knees!"

Brooke Wyndham

"Legally Blonde"

"I'll get you whipped into shape!"



"Impossible, for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage!"

Reno Sweeney

"Anything Goes"

"But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!"



"The sun'll come out tomorrow!"

Anna Leonowens

"The King and I"

"It's very exciting when you're young and you're sitting on a small gilt chair. Your eyes lowered, terrified you'll be a wallflower."

Dorothy Gale

"The Wizard of Oz"

"How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?"

Anastasia "Anya" Romanov


"Back to who I was, on to find my future!"

Polly Baker

"Crazy for You"

"Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you!"

Meg Brockie


"I'm highly attracted to you. Why, when I look at you I feel wee tadpoles jumping up my spine."


"The Little Mermaid"

"I don't know when. I don't know how, but I know something's starting right now. Watch and you'll see. Someday I'll be part of your world!"



"*giggle* Toss, toss!"


"Mamma Mia"

"Does your mother know?"

Will I ever get to play all of these characters? Probably not. I probably won't even be able to play half of them, whether the show isn't interesting or I just don't fit the character profile the director wants. But a girl can dream about the roles she wants, no matter how realistic. One day I hope to be able to play at least some of these characters.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
