I'm 19 and an aspiring musical theatre actress. But I'm worried that no director will want to cast me in anything because I'm 5'6 with these measurements:
Waist: 24 inches
Hips: 38 inches
I'm curvy, but I keep losing roles to girls who are either skinny or fat (I honestly couldn't think of a nicer way to put it) and I'm always instead cast in either comedic roles! What should I do?

I would say, make sure you understand who you're auditioning for. As in the casting director and try to see eye to eye with them. Try to see who they want in their play.
Do your research on the show but also on who you're meeting and might possibly work with.
How you dress may impact their decision. Of course dress appropriately.
Be yourself, make sure they know who you are and make them want to work with you.
You may find you want to apologize but do not, try to be confident and remain professional.
Also what kind of shows are you auditioning for?0

Your measurements sound excellent.
Your inability to get roles most probably has nothing to do with your measurements.
Either there's too much nepotism in the industry (as it does everywhere) or you don't have what it takes (the necessary talent or charisma or both).0
