    OT: Wizard of Oz Instrumentation

    Hey everyone,

    I have a strange question. Does anyone know what the instrumentation for the Broadway version of the Wizard of Oz is? If not, anyone know how I can find out?

    Thanks for the help.

    For more information, check out www.jonathoncox.com/intro.html
