Post Larger pit or orchestral arrangement??
Hi! We're considering doing Little Shop at our school this year, but I know the pit orchestra only consists of a small rock ensemble. PROBLEM - our school has a pretty robust pit orchestra each year.

Does anyone know if there is a full orchestra arrangement of the score? Or, does anyone know of ANYONE who has the arranging chops to do this?

Jekyll and Hyde had 50 kids in the pit. I think there might be a coup if we only have 4 this year.

When I was in LITTLE SHOP my junior year in high school, our orchestra had 3 people.

There's a twelve-piece arrangement used in the revival. If you try really hard, you may be able to find that. Otherwise, not much you can do.

"I LOVE incarceration,
I could lock up a platoon,
I'll be strapping up an inmate,
Very tightly, very soon.
So wave one bachelor goodbye,
She'll be your bride- she'd rather die
Than have her daddy ossify
In my sordid saloon..."
