SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL JR.
All of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR. 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 and guard an egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule and danger, the powers of friendship, loyalty, and community emerge triumphant!
The Horton Cast will perform July 23-25
The Whos Cast will perform July 30-August 1

About Academy Productions
In a WCT Academy Production experience, every student is guaranteed a role in the production. We ask each student to audition for the role they will receive in this supportive environment. Leading up to the audition, students will have theatre classes designed to develop and strengthen their core stage skills, as they approach the audition date with the goal of feeling prepared and confident in the audition process.
Students participate in the full rehearsal process and are part of bringing a production to life from the first rehearsal to the final performances for audiences.
