Seven Star School of Performing Arts is holding auditions for their spring musical, Seussical Jr., Saturday January 9th by appointment. Auditions are open to kids, ages 5-18. Rehearsals will be scheduled on select Saturdays and Sundays at 509 Route 312 in Brewster, NY. Performances are May 13th and 14th.
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical Jr., a fantastical musical extravaganza! 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!
While there is no cost to audition, if cast, there is a participation fee. Visit their website for information on what to prepare for the audition.
