)-- Holy Child Academy Presents "Seussical Jr." MARCH 16-17
Holy Child Academy presents “Seussical Jr.,” a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, March 16 and 17. "Seussical Jr.” brings together all of Dr. Seuss’s beloved characters including Horton the Elephant and the Cat in the Hat. Performances are Friday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 17 at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available at www.HolyChildAcademy.com/SpringMusical or at the door before each performance.
Holy Child Academy students in grades 1-8 will perform in the school musical, which transports 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 from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger 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 Jr.” is directed by Nate Golden, a teaching artist at the Walnut Street Theatre since 2011 and artistic director of the Philadelphia-based Nightcap Cabaret since 2014. He has worked with many area theatres including Walnut Street Theatre, Arden Theatre, Delaware Theatre Company, Media Theatre, Bristol Riverside Theatre, The Wilma Theatre and Theatre Horizon. The Holy Child Academy production of "Seussical Jr." is produced by Annie Barrera with musical direction by Carol McGarvey and choreography by Katie Webb.
