Lloyd Skelton, Susie Wood,  Jack Beggs, Martha Spohn were picked for their rolls because they were the smallest kids in school.  They were first on the stage, and after their dance, they took up their positions which they kept the entire play.

Three Woods kids, three Powells, and three Richardsons were in it.
