Post Character Ranges
I've always been curious as to what Curly's range was, but since I don't want this to be another waste of a greedy, lame thread, can someone give the ranges of all the characters (I think this will be very helpful). All of my usual sources say which voice part each character is, but not their range. Curly sounds like he goes up to about an F or a G.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't go higher than G, but there are several of those.

No higher than a G? Are you sure it's that high? I was thinkin' he only sang up to an E or an F.
