Casting Horton for Unchanged Voice?
I am beginning to plan for this year's musical, and I really like the idea of Seussical, Jr. The cast is comprised of 4th and 5th graders, and I notice that Horton is a baritone. None of my boys have changed voices, and so I was wondering what success others had with performing Seussical with an elementary school cast?Did you just have Horton sing an 8va the entire time? Did you change the keys of some of his songs? Change his melodies as needed? Has anyone else encountered this issue? Just wondering how you dealt with it.Thanks so much for any insight or advice!

Appropriate for Elementary School?
Hello, I'm wondering from those who have done this show before, if it would be appropriate for 4-5th graders. I only ask because I know the original B'way musical has themes of violence and alcoholism among other "adult themes." Have these things been changed at all for the Jr. version, or are they true to the original? For example, does Sarah still get drunk in Havanah??Thanks!
