Post Jesus Christ Superstar casting/orchestration?

I'm music directing JCS for an upcoming production and I'm wondering what I should be expecting for the pit. I'm having a hard time telling, going back and forth between different recordings, whether there are very big string sections or very high quality keyboards in some of these orchestras. Has anyone played in the show before, or been on stage and remember what the pit set-up was? Getting the strings to click on stuff like John Nineteen: Forty-One and the big runs over Heaven On Their Minds are intimidating me as far as finding capable players is concerned.

Also, I'm pretty sure I'm set on the casting process, but if there are any pointers anyone came across while putting together the show, feel free to throw 'em in! Thanks!
