A Part of us
Currently doing a production of OOTI jr. It seems to me that the emotional weight of the song A Part of Us has been substantially lessened by the cuts from the original score, and it makes the staging less able to show it as well (The passing of Timoune amongst the gods in the original is kind of glossed over) Any suggestions as to how effectively stage the song and maintain the emotional as the jr show is written? ( The original song brings a lump to my throught every time I hear it!)

Beauty and Beast Jr. for UNchanged voice?
Hoping to do Beauty and Beast JR. w/grades 5 and 6. Anyone have suggestions for adapting vocals for unchanged male voice since the male ranges of the junior shows tend to be too low for unchanged voices (and singing up the octave sounds too high!). Should I use transpose or adapt the melodies? Don't have my scores yet so not sure what to expect.

Appropriate audience for Pirates of Penzance Jr?
Our youth theatre group is considering Pirates of Penzance Jr. for our next season. I've been watching the movie and listening to the music and trying to figure out if it will work for us. We are heavily dependent on our school sales to support the company's productions, and I'm trying to imagine our grade school students coming to see this, and struggling a bit. I LOVE this musical - I think it's terrific; but I'm uncertain how young audiences will react. I have sent off for the perusal package to hear it and get a better sense, but would be grateful for feedback. We just did Peter Pan and had kindergarteners and grade 1 students flocking to our doors - who am I really targeting at our schools if we take this on? Is it going to work with the younger grades, and if so, do I need to make a package for them to prepare for it? I'd be grateful to hear of others' experiences.

Puppet Rentals
I cannot wait to bring this show to my theater, but am looking for options ( beyond socks) for puppets. What are people doing for puppets and where are you getting them?
