ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. Directors are currently in need of performers for the musical "Seussical". See the details below. About the project: "Seussical" is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life our favorite Dr. Seuss characters. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Who's from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping 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. Seussical is fun for the whole family! Rate: Non-Equity, volunteer production. Additional information: Seussical’s show runs from Friday, February 16, to Sunday, March 10. Rehearsals will be held three times a week, two weeknights and Sunday afternoons.
