Workshop Description

Our next workshop is Seussical KIDS! This two-week workshop for 8-14 year olds meets August 13 – 24 (M-F). During the workshop, students will be cast, rehearse, tech and perform the thirty-minute Seussical KIDS. In this two-week program, students will go more in depth with daily acting, singing, or dance classes.

You’ll say, “Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

REHEARSALS: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm (Before-care available)

PERFORMANCE: August 24 at 3:30 pm

AUDITIONS: No auditions necessary

About The Show

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical KIDS, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime).

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but 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, 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!
