like the suggestions. another vote for "Our Town"

other plays with A LOT OF PARTS

"Stage Door" - the 1938 film, of the 1926 play, features Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Adolphe Menjou, Jack Carson, Lucille Ball, Eve Arden and Ann Miller. (15 parts - 5 major women parts)

also written by Edna Ferber "Dinner ar Eight"

"The Seagull" - 10 parts, all good. Anton Chekhov termed it a comedy.

Musicals a group member was playing the piano in January. a musical director. a CD to help-out.

"Hair" - (thought it was too square to accept tickets to attend in '68 and '69; now it seems to have a lot to it.)

Shakespeare-like
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare deconstruction)
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" Shakespeare's great lyrical comedy

or, maybe, do 3 or 4 short plays in one evening.

Every day, to earn my daily bread
I go to the market where lies are bought
Hopefully
I take up my place among the sellers.
