Well, that's no fun... of course I have no idea what version of it we'll be
doing, but I would imagine that it will be the original. I suppose that
means I get to pick up the tenor again, as the two tenor players in band
both have roles in the musical. I also know that my director completely
rewrote the score to Little Shop to include some saxes and brass, but he
swears that he'll never do that again (and I don't exactly blame him
either)... but no matter what happens, I know that it will still be a lot
of fun...
