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.
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.
