I would love to know what different instrumentations have been used successfully in Seussical. We are preparing to assemble our ensemble and we don't have a wealth of instrumentalists to draw from. What would you consider the basic ensemble and what would give you the best bang for your buck after that basic group? I would appreciate any information and advice!-Greg

For bass guitar: is there a bass guitar part or does the bassist use the bass (double bass) book?

Thank you so much Christopher. That is going to be about the size of my ensemble and it is great to know that it can work and sound great!!!

When we performed Seussical, we used a piano, drumset, clarinet, trumpet, flute and bass guitar. It sounded great.
