Seussical

Seussical  was at the Dovehouse Theatre, Wednesday-Saturday March 28-31st 2012.

SeussicalThis magical foot-tapping musical for all the family features favourite characters from the stories of Dr Seuss – Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, The Whos, and a boy with a big imagination—Jojo.    The blessings of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

The opening song captures the show’s spirit of imagination which transports us to the Jungle of Nool, the Circus McGurkus and the invisible world of the Whos.

The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge–not only must he protect his friend  Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to 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, the only one who recognizes “his kind and his powerful heart.”   Here is a synopsis of the story in more detail.

  1. Hello

    I would like to audition for this musical, the next production “Seussical”. My friend has emailed me a 2 page of the character list, but it doesn’t make sense to me at all. What is the workshop? Could I come and is there a fee for the workshop? What does the workshop include?

    Hope to hear from you soon

  2. Thanks, Emily. Sorry you weren’t able to come to the audition, where we looked at the different characters in the show and listened to some of the music. We then improvised what the characters would think about the “court scene” where Horton the Elephant is being put on trial. We will make sure you receive by email the information we are sending out about the auditions on September 4th.

  3. Hi, i am really interested in taking part in this drama school, as soon as possible. My friend told me about SMASH as her brother came when he was our age. My friend and I would like to take part in the next performance (Seussical) if it’s not to late. Could you please forward me and more information on the times and costs please.
    Many thanks,
    Becky.
