I might have missed this on the website but I'm just wondering what makes this the Junior version? Are certain parables or songs left out of this version?

Is this appropriate for a public school?
I teach and direct in a public school. I am very familiar with this show (at least the full length version) having performed in it twice, and having worked crew on it once, so I know the story and the songs. What I am wondering about is if any of you have done this in a public school, and have you run into any issues because of the religious themes. I saw one comment on another question that indicted that they painted symbols of all of the monotheistic religions on the stage floor. I am wondering if that would make matters better or worse. Am I being overly sensitive/cautious, or has anyone else run into a similar concern?

We received an accompaniment CD with our "Godspell Jr." ShowKit. If we choose not to have a live pianist accompany our performances, this CD is our only option for pre-recorded tracks -- right?

Where to Start?
My school will be putting on Godspell, Jr. this school year. I usually like to show the students a movie of the production to familiarize them with it. In this case, I think it would do more harm than good. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle this particular play: costumes, set, etc.? The cast will consist of 4th - 8th graders.
