    Seussical Jr.

    Music by Stephen Flaherty
    Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
    Book by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty, and Eric Idle

    Seussical Jr. is the whimsical musical based on the works of Dr. Seuss. Created by weaving and incorporating over 15 of his stories, we get to see many of his most famous and beloved characters meet and enter into adventures that take them everywhere from the Jungle of Nool, to McElligott’s Pool, to Palm Beach. With tons of featured roles, Seussical Jr. offers great acting, singing and dancing challenges for musical theatre students of all skill levels and each student will be cast in a role that will make him/her stretch toward the next level. This production provides opportunities for more experienced students to not only stretch themselves as performers, but also as leaders and mentors to a new crop of up-and-coming talents through structured theatre skills workshops.

    About Ensemble:

    The Ensemble production is a musical for young audiences and is for students in grades 3-12. The show runs in the spring and there is a tuition fee to participate. Rehearsals are six to eight weeks, the shows run for two- three weekends and are professionally designed and directed. The emphasis is on the performer.

    About Summer Independent:

    The Summer Independent program is a professionally-mentored program unique to Village Theatre. It the pinnacle experience for students who come with a background in live theatre, and it provides autonomy, resources, and mentorship to select, mount, and produce their own full-scale show from start to finish. Students take on every aspect of production, from performing, directing, and stage management, to designing and building sets, creating costumes, running sound and lights, marketing, production management, and more. Village Theatre's entire professional staff — from the shops to the marketing office to the stage managers and beyond — are involved in mentoring the artistic team, all of whom are considered professional interns. The Summer Independent program is an entry point to professional theatre for the entire production team and Summer Independent performers are challenged with the goal of reaching the highest professional standards possible. The program is a breeding ground for tomorrow's top talents. In the last few years, Summer Independent participants have gone on to college at The Juilliard School, Boston Conservatory, University of Washington, Carnegie Mellon University, Western Washington University, Pennsylvania State, Point Park College, Whitman College, New York University, Yale, Cornish College for the Arts, and Cal Arts. Many have performed professionally both locally and nationally at venues such as Village Theatre Mainstage, Seattle Opera, The Paramount Theatre, A Contemporary Theatre, 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, On and Off-Broadway, movies, and television. Past Summer Independent shows have included: Assassins, Urinetown, Chicago, … Spelling Bee, Pippin, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown, The Fantasticks, Lost In Yonkers, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, All Shook Up, The Spitfire Grill, and West Side Story.

    The Summer Independent artistic team members, ideally, have previously participated as TAP students and/or have some experience working on productions at Village Theatre Mainstage or KIDSTAGE.
