Please encourage your Lower School child to audition for a lead role in this year’s production of Seussical JR. on Monday, October 17 and Monday, October 24. Everyone will be asked to sing a portion of a solo (“It’s Possible, Part 1,” “Alone in the Universe,” or “All for You”) and the ensemble piece, “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think.” If they have not signed up at school and are interested, please email Mr. Scheetz.
SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR SPRING PERFORMANCE ON MARCH 17!
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters will spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
