The Draper Historic Theater is beyond proud to announce auditions for their summer musical Seussical! Seussical, is a musical by Stephen Flaherty and Lyn Ahrens, that is based on the works of Dr. Seuss. This beautiful story weaves together Dr. Seuss’ most famous tales and characters in unexpected and wonderful ways.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in 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. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Seussical is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables.

The production staff for Seussical: the Musical includes: Alix James Van Noy (Director, Scenic Design, Light Design), Taylor Twitchell (Director, Prop Design) Craig Haycock (Technical Advisor), Marc Navez (Artistic Director), Heather Haycock (Choreography)  and Michelle Hickman (Costume Design)
