The Broadway Company used 32 players, 14 women and 18 men. Note: Because the on stage performers are singing end dancing at the same time, the off-stage singers are used for vocal support. However, the audience should never be aware that it is not hearing just the performers on stage. See the chart below for Dance Bag positioning. All bags should be e dark tone so they never pull your eye or catch the light.
