Summer On Stage at The Stanley 2018 Auditions: Seussical - The Musical!
The Summer On Stage at The Stanley youth summer camp is ready to hit the ground running with auditions for this summer's production of Seussical, directed by Deb Holling! This program is open to all students incoming freshman to outgoing seniors! During the camp, students will be learning the basics of theatrical production, from the casting process all the way through to the performance of a piece! We will even be accepting student crew members!
The summer program runs Monday through Friday from 11:00am - 3:00pm beginning on Monday, July 8th through Friday August 10th.
The public performances of Seussical will take place on Friday, August 10th, and Saturday, August 11th at 7:30 pm.
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
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 Whos 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.
"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
