Children’s Theatre Announces Auditions for ‘Seussical’
The Berkshire Theatre Group announces the ninth annual Children’s Theatre Production for the 2014 summer season; ‘Seussical,’ directed by Travis G. Daly, opens on August 7 at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Mass. Dr. Seuss’ most beloved stories spring to life in one magical musical with all of his classic characters: Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, the Whos of Whoville, Gertrude McFuzz, Jojo and more! In this unforgettable tale of friendship, love, family, and community, The Cat in the Hat narrates a whimsical story of Horton the Elephant who must guard a lonely abandoned egg and protect the Whos from all danger! With flying stunts by the actors, unforgettably fun songs and dance, ‘Seussical’ the musical dives into a fantastic and incredible crazy-quilt adventure exploring the wonderful power of imagination, determination and positive thinking. The goal of BTG’s community production is to bring together children and adults who learn from each other all in the midst of collaboration and creativity.
The Berkshire Theatre Group seeks child and adult actors, musicians, backstage crew, technical support, usher staff and parent volunteers to participate in in ‘Seussical.’ The roles and positions are open to members of the Berkshire community, third grade through adults. Rehearsals will begin Sunday, June 22.
