I found this really great video from the first run of Whistle Down the Wind.

Does anyone know anything about the kids in this show? They all have such big, powerful voices. It's a shame it didn't have a chance to play Broadway.

Hi Kelly- unfortunately the critics killed the US Tour of Whistle Down the Wind. It was unfortunate as the audiences loved it. The music is absolutely gorgeous!

How many children are in the cast? Didn't Marissa do this show shortly after her tour ended? Does anyone know which part she played?

Here are some website with some information. One of the moms that posts on this forum has a daughter who was in the National Tour.

I'm so happy to see this video back online. It comes from the same person who posted the video of the Annie in my post below. He has such a fantastic collection of musical videos but they had all gone. I'm so glad to see he has opened another account and is putting them back on YouTube.

There were 9 kids who travelled with the show, and then 16 kids from each city joined the show. Marissa was never in this past production.

I really don't understand why this show never made it. I've seen a lot of these videos on youtube, and everytime the music just chokes me up. It's absolutely beautiful. I really wish it had come to Broadway so I would have a chance to see it. Does anyone know exactly why it failed?
