Can anybody tell me the instrumentation of the pit band for Evita?

Thanks in anticipation.

I think there are different versions. The last one I did sound for had:

5 reeds
3 trumpets
1 trombone
2 horns
2 keyboards (don't remember what flavor)
1 guitars
drums
kitchen (percussion)
2 violins
1 cello
1 bass
1 harp

The summer stock I worked for was known for doing complete pit orchestras.

You're right, it was only four reeds. I remember the horrible sound coming from reed 2.:D
