Hi! I'm new to this community. I absolutely love West Side Story, and I always have. Everything about it is magnificent. My favourite numbers in the movie would probably be "Cool", "America", and the "Tonight Quintet".

I have a question though. Next year my school is doing West Side Story, and I reeeeeeeeeeally would like to get the part of Anybodys. I wouldn't mind being Graziella either, but Anybodys would be a much better acting opportunity. I was wondering if anybody here has been Anybody's before and they had to cut their hair really short? Haha, I'm extremely attached to my long hair. There's no guarantees I'd get the part, but if I did, I'm worried they'd force me to cut my hair real short.

Couldn't you pin it up and wear a wig?

Also, I find it interesting that you're set on Anybodys, when most people want to be Maria or Anita... Cool, though...

ha, well I am a pale, blue-eyed, blonde...with straight hair! I am the farthest thing from looking puertorican. I also get cast as really feminine roles a lot of the time, and I'd like a challenge

I'm pale and blue eyed, but brunette... I've often wondered if I could pull off Maria. lol.

That's cool. I think Anybodys would be one heck of a challenge. Hard work, but alot of fun, too.

You could always use a flesh-colored skull-cap (is that what they call them? It would be the best option for gettng all that hair out of the way, I think) and a quality wig.

Anybodys would be a kick-ass part to play.

Don't worry about it! :)

When I was in the 5th grade, I went to see West Side Story at my future high school...Anybody's had long blond hair in a ponytail and wore a baseball cap! :)

not quite Anybodys, but...
heh, well my show was interesting. We turned Big Deal into "Big Dehlia" and the running joke in the cast was whether I was supposed to be a girl who was somehow actually accepted into the Jets or if I was supposed to be a girl playing a guy. ^_^ It was an awesome part though. Tougher than Anybodys (and yet fighting side-by-side with her a lot), and able to be one of the Jets, complete with all the best songs and rumbling etc. >:D

But about the hair... no, there was no cutting involved. Both Anybodys and I just had to wear it pulled back in a pony tail, Anybodys with a baseball cap. I think with Anybodys especially, they want to see the hair. They want to make it clear that this is a girl.

Go for the part. It's probably the funnest female part in the show. :D

Re: not quite Anybodys, but...
Yeah, I agree that Anybodys should clearly look like a girl, not like a girl playing a guy.

I certainly think being Anybodys would be a heck of a lot of fun! Male roles are always a lot of fun, and Anybodys is the closest I could get to having a somewhat male role.
