    All parts are notoriously badly written out and with mistakes. Really requires an extra rehearsal just to sort out parts.

    • Merilee Updike says:

      That is absolutely true. The parts are horrible! The score doesn’t match the parts, cuts are shown in the parts that aren’t cut in the score, but other cuts shown in the parts are cut in the score. It’s a real mess.

      From the MIT website:

      ORCHESTRAL MATERIAL
      Orchestral material for this show is provided free of charge and will be sent for the duration of your rehearsal period. The parts may require some work prior to orchestral rehearsals from your MD.

    The Rodgers and Hammerstein rental version is now reduced:
    Reed 1: Piccolo, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Sax

    The MTI rental version is as above, except that reed 4 has no tenor sax.
