NBC is currently planning another musical to broadcast live on television during the 2014 holiday season. While the network hasn't made its wish list public, decided to share our picks for the family-friendly musicals we would like to see on screen and who should star.

NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, along with producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, previously stated that they were identifying musicals that were well-known titles with identifiable scores that the whole family could enjoy.

Last week polled our readers to ask which musicals they'd like to see presented next. To read the musicals our readers picked, click here.

Keeping that in mind (as much as possible), what follows is's list of musicals and the dream casts that might fit the bill.
