We are excited to announce that in Fall 2021 we are bringing Seussical Jr., back for two weekends of live performances and live stream from IPBA Studio 7 theater.
As a previous Seussical cast member we are inviting you back to keep your previous role/roles and/or audition for new roles based on openings. Everyone must attend the audition day or schedule a make-up to show your re-commitment to the show and rehearsal process.
“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!” – MTI
