How intense is the difficulty of the guitar part of the orchestration? Or, how vital of a role does the guitarist have in the pit? My (potential) musical director has let me know that most guitarists he has are at a rhythm guitar level, but can't read sheet music particularly well and would need a lot of coaching.

From Freaky Friday provided by Disney:

GUITAR: Player needs to quickly comp various contemporary styles and have a good knowledge at using effects to match those styles. Electric playing should be hard and muscular. Styles lean towards the late 1990s–present as opposed to the 1970s or 1980s. Acoustic guitar is mostly comping. There are a certain amount of notated parts for nylon string, so traditional reading is required as well.
