Scene-change Music To cover the scene changes and to indicate the passage of time, the band should play scene- change music as follows:-

Between Act I, Scene 1 (part 3) and Act I, Scene 2:Musical Number 9 - from bar 40 – and then fade out when ready.

Between Act I, Scene 2 and Act I, Scene 3:Musical Number 11 - from the beginning – and then fade out when ready.

Between Act II, Scene 1 and Act II, Scene 2:Musical Number 14 - from Bar 65 to the end.

Between Act II, Scene 2 and Act II, Scene 3:Musical Number 14 - from Bar 52 to Bar 61.

Between Act II, Scene 3 and Act II, Scene 4:Musical Number 15 - from Bar 5 – and then fade out when ready.

Orchestration - and percussion in particular (NB These notes apply to the standard three-piece orchestration. Small societies may wish to perform Act Your Age with just a piano accompaniment in which case these notes about orchestration and percussion don’t apply) The Percussion part for Act Your Age requires a standard drum kit:- crash cymbal, ride cymbal, bass drum, three toms and a snare plus a woodblock, a duck call and a wolf-whistle. Although written for a drum kit, the part is not so much a set of suggested drumming rhythms but more a prescriptive, bar-by-bar accompaniment to the music – ie it’s a percussion part rather than a drum part. In musical number 12, however, the drums are the driving force and the percussionist can let rip with flamboyant rock-style playing. Act Your Age includes a number of comic songs where words count above all else. Many of the theatres and halls in which societies perform have imperfect acoustics and / or an imperfect sound systems and so, to help word-clarity, the orchestration has been kept light. In particular, high frequencies such as those produced by cymbals and snare drums can sometimes drown consonants – so, for the percussion, dynamics have generally been marked down and high-frequency instruments have been used sparingly. The exceptions are those sections of music where the words are being repeated or where there is only dancing and movement without singing or dialogue. In addition to the above, the Musical Director and sound team might look to improve word clarity still further by keeping the orchestra volume low, reducing the percussion, and, if possible, acoustically screening the percussionist from the audience.

Rehearsal Tracks A set of audio CDs containing rehearsal tracks is available from the publisher. These tracks are designed to help the principals and the chorus learn the music. The accompaniment plays on one stereo channel whilst the part to be learnt (melody) plays on the other. Altering the setting of the stereo balance control will adjust how much of a helping hand is provided whilst learning the part. NB The tempi on the tracks should be treated simply as a guide.

Cast Recording A live recording of the Act Your Age music is available from the publisher. It is taken from the original production. For the most part it matches the current version of the score but please be aware that Musical Number 2 has evolved since the recording was made – and there have also been small changes to a couple of other songs.

Additional Notes to the MD In three of the musical numbers:- ‘Prelude Act I’, ‘Sunny Seniors Are Us’ and ‘Tight Ship’, the chorus divides into three groups. Each group may include men and women. There is no particular need for voicetypes to be associated with particular groups but it should be noted that the vocal ranges of each group are slightly different and, for example, a tenor or a high soprano may be uncomfortable in group 3. During musical number 16 the pauses that herald a transition from waltz to tango and vice-versa can be held a long time if necessary - but it is probably best to hold the pauses rather than stop the music altogether.
