Don't be fooled - Little Mermaid is HARD
We just finished performing this show this past weekend, and let me tell you - it was a difficult run. The kids did "okay", but were very upset because of the difficulty of this show. TONS of music and cues. TONS of set changes. Special lighting effect, sounds cues, lots of costumes, difficult staging requirement - and high G abound and can't really be changed or fixed. Just hope you have some high singing sopranos! Just a lot of stuff to do and take care of.BUT the worst part, was the score. It is nearly impossible to play (I don't know who the arranger was - but they obviously *don't* play the piano. A 3rd of it was hard, a 3rd was very hard, and a 3rd of it was impossible to play. Literally impossible because of the writing. Notes out of the reach of your hands and very difficult cross patterns and runs. You would think they would have "dumbed it down" a bit for the general music market, but they didn't - so be prepared to use the CD). Also, many, many mistakes and typo in the actual score. So spend a day going through it with a fine tooth comb to make sure you are doing it right. I had kids in tears on the first show day - and we were *well* prepared. Lovely show, just very, very hard to pull off in the general music market. sigh.

Casting Horton for Unchanged Voice?
I am beginning to plan for this year's musical, and I really like the idea of Seussical, Jr. The cast is comprised of 4th and 5th graders, and I notice that Horton is a baritone. None of my boys have changed voices, and so I was wondering what success others had with performing Seussical with an elementary school cast?Did you just have Horton sing an 8va the entire time? Did you change the keys of some of his songs? Change his melodies as needed? Has anyone else encountered this issue? Just wondering how you dealt with it.Thanks so much for any insight or advice!

Parent/Student Guides
I feel a duty to present this show in order to raise discussion. Is there a simple study guide or resource manual that other organizations have used to assist youth and parents find responsible answers to their questions? Or to stimulate dialogue about the topics raised in the show?
