Brite Stars – Seussical JR! (Single Payment)
Join our Brite Stars Cast (Ages 8-11) in a Broadway-style show, in a state-of-the-art 400 seat theater with full sets and costumes.
“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
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 from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and 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 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!
All students should come prepared to sing a song from the show. Students should refer to Music Theater International for all auditioning sides and details. This is an incredible resource to help prepare for this season’s audition.
Go to https://www.mtishows.com/seussical-jr, then click on Audition Central. Each character has a breakdown and songs to prepare. Miss Holly will be using these exact auditioning sides during the audition process. We may not need to hear all the songs or read all the scenes, but any material used will come from this resource.
The cast rehearses every Tuesday through production in June. Rehearsals are from 4:00-6:00 pm with select scene rehearsals from 6:00-7:00 (varies week to week) Please be advised that every rehearsal attendance is mandatory and crucial to the success of the show.
