The MTI Show Collection: Shrek Prosthetic Makeup
www.fxwarehouseinc.com is wonderful. The prosthetic pieces were great and they have an instruction video that was really helpful. You need to order early because of the demand but once I got my order in it arrived when they said it would.

MTI Show Support: casting for Peter Pan Jr.
Hi, C.R. --
That certainly does sound like a challenging situation! I can see how WILLY WONKA worked out ideally in this regard by allowing you to tier the cast into groups of leads, Oompa Loompas, and other chorus members.
For PETER PAN JR, like you say, this might be more of a challenge since the various groups interact more frequently. You might be able to have a stage manager or script reader (or yourself) rehearse opposite whomever is currently in the rehearsal room as a stand-in. Before the performances, I'm assuming you'll have at least some rehearsal time together to put the elements together and smooth out the transitions. You could use that time to fit together your separate groups and make sure everything's running like clockwork.
You might also be able to make a few other Junior shows work this way -- I think GUYS AND DOLLS JR might be a good one. It has lots of scene work and singing between the leads, but also a host of supporting characters (gamblers) to whom you could give featured time, and some ensemble numbers for the Mission Band and Hot Box Girls that you could have the larger group rehearse. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF JR might also function similarly -- with the main family character, named villagers, and chorus members. You'd have to take a closer look at these ones to make sure they'd suit your exact needs and that the interplay between the groups would work out the way you want it to in rehearsal, but these two come to mind. THE MUSIC MAN JR might also work in a similar way. I think the structure of some of these "classic" titles seems to lend itself more to your model -- where the cast breakdown is delineated more toward a "leads, supporting, chorus" structure.
I hope any of these suggestions might be helpful.
