SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL
Last Weekend!
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book and Music by Stephen Flaherty
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
Directed by Connie Mockenhaupt
 
Seussical  is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

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 entire family!

AUDITION
Auditions for Little Red Riding Hood and the Magic Dragon
 
When: Sunday, July 21 – 7:00pm
Where:  Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom See Map- https://goo.gl/maps/8pRg6Fi1vMCzmFX9A
 
What to bring: Prepare a short song. We strongly suggest that you bring sheet music but if that is not possible a CD or phone will be accepted. An accompanist will be provided. Also bring a headshot and resume if you have them.
 
The show runs September 7 through September 29 on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00pm.
 
Rehearsals will start approximately four weeks before opening and are usually Mondays through Thursdays at 7:00pm.
 
Synopsis: The musical begins where the story of Little Red Riding Hood ends. Little Red is bored with her story and with the help of Toby the Dragon, sets off to find new adventures. 
 
Following are the characters:
 
Little Red Riding Hood – Female – older child to teen
 
Grandmother, Witch 1, Witch 2 – Female – Would prefer an adult actor but will consider an older teen
The roles of the witches are comedic in nature.
It is possible the roles will be split among different actors.
 
Woodsman, Hansel, Prince, Knight – Male – Would prefer an actor in their 20’s or 30’s but will consider an older teen.
The actor should be able to handle multiple characters and bring an individual reality to each one. It is also possible that the roles will be split among several actors.
 
Toby the Magic Dragon – Male – Child or Teen
Toby is a puppet that will be operated by the actor who will also speak Toby’s lines. Ability to do different dialects is a plus.
 
Magic – Male or Female
This is a non-speaking role but an important part of establishing the magic of the show, hence the name. The actor should be able to move well as there is some stylized movement of this character—not dance but a smooth, flowing aspect to the movements.
