Not tall enough for...ensemble?

So, I check Actors Equity casting calls, and see they're looking to cast future replacements for ensemble singers as thus: "Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, and Basses. Looking for singers with big, healthy voices, impeccable diction and wide ranges. Sopranos should not hesitate in showing off their sustained high notes and basses should give us their best ‘low’. Understudies for the Principals may be drawn from the ensemble."

I, I fit the bill. I have a wide, legit, big healthy voice with a high sustained Eb...perfect.

Then I notice at the bottom of the breakdown:

"Female Singers:
Height, 5’6” to 5’10”. "

Damn!!!! WHY!??! Most women are not 5'10''! They're short, like me, at 5'2"...grrrr!
