BPA Theatre School stages SEUSSICAL JR. July 30 - August 1
Aberown Studio presents SEUSSICAL JR.
July 30 - August 1 @ Bainbridge Performing Arts
Thursday & Friday @ 7:00 p.m. + Saturday @ 3:00 p.m.
Join us July 30 – August 1 for the hit show SEUSSICAL JR., where Dr. Seuss’s best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper! Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in this fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island, and Ragtime). BPA Theatre School Director of Education Zandi Carlson says, “This summer’s production has the music, the humor and the spectacle that will engage audiences of all ages. We are so proud of the energy and enthusiasm our young performers bring to rehearsals. This will be such a fun and wondrous production, and we can’t wait to share it with you!”
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!
