Audio files demonstrating the new arrangements
for the 2016 production.
Compare the original with the new and see the expansion and improvement!

There are no singers on these demos.
The vocal lines are represented by instrumental sounds.
Follow along in the libretto or the vocal score.
The numbering indicated does not follow the newest version, as changes have been made.

The order of these pieces has been re-arranged and the numbers no longer quite make sense.  They do in the final version.




No 6a Politics (Cut from original production for time)

No 8 Not A Lot To Do is a brand-new number! -- written especially to showcase the talents of the young people in the cast of the 2016 production.  It's fun.
