Seussical JR.

“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

Performances will be Friday 7:30 and Saturday 2:30 and 7:30, October 20-21 and October 27-28 at the Sherwood Center for the Arts.

Auditions

Auditions are September 5th-6th 3:30-6pm and are open for students in 4th-12th grade. Callbacks will be by invitation only on September 8th 3:30-6pm.

Students should prepare 32 bars of a song with a karaoke track, preferably Broadway style. Bring your track on an ipod or mp3 device. A piano will be available if you’d like to bring your own accompanist instead.

Some things to think about as you prepare – STAGE PRESENCE (are you comfortable and confident onstage), VOICE (volume, diction, tone, pitch), and CHARACTER (are you telling the audience the “story” of your song).

High School Interns

High schoolers are invited to apply for volunteer student internships. Selected students will gain leadership experience and have fun in our theater program. Responsibilities include helping younger cast members learn music, blocking, and dances, playing drama games, and supervising a small group.

Performances will be Friday 7:30 and Saturday 2:30 and 7:30, October 20-21 and October 27-28 at the Sherwood Center for the Arts. Students may be split into two casts and have three performances each.

Tuition and Volunteers

It takes a village as they say and theater productions are no different! We love our volunteers and couldn’t do it without you. If you’re interested in set construction or painting, costuming, hunting for props, or don’t mind what you’re doing if it’s surrounded by some awesome friends – sign up here or contact us to find out how you can help!

Tuition for our musical theater program this year will be $95 plus a minimum of 8 volunteer hours for the production. We will offer an opt-out fee of $80 to be excused from the volunteer hours required.

Students will also need to provide basic makeup, modesty wear, and shoes. The tuition will cover a show t-shirt and script for each student, and help with the remaining production costs of sets, props, lighting, sound, and more!
