Theatre of Anthem Presents “Seussical, Jr.”
Jan. 2, 2012
– Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces its upcoming production of the
fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza Seussical,
Jr. Tony award-winners Lynn
Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our 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 show, completely underscored by music, is performed by
highly skilled youth ages 13 – 19 from around the Valley.
“Whether you are 6 or 60, Seussical
will make you smile, laugh, and want to sing along as the characters
from your childhood come alive on stage,” said director and Zoni-winning
choreographer Sherry Henderson. “Share with your children and
grandchildren the stories that you loved so much…Horton the Elephant, the Whos
and more!” MTA’s Producing
Artistic Director Jackie Hammond is producing and vocal directing the show.
"Sherry and I very are excited about this production,” said
Hammond. “Because we have less
than fifteen rehearsals to put up the show, everyone involved from
production staff, to costume and props coordinators, to the
performers, will be challenged more than ever. The pacing will be that of a
professional production, with the quality to match it!"
“Oh, the Thinks You Can Think” captures the show’s
spirit of imagination, as the colorful characters transport us from the Jungle
of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are
challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.
Performances take place on February 16, 17, 18 at 7:00 p.m.
and February 18 and 19 at 3:00 p.m. at Boulder Creek High School’s Mini
Auditorium, 40404 N. Gavilan Peak Pkwy, Anthem, AZ 85086.
