November 18 & 19 by appointment only
Quincy Community Theatre is excited to announce auditions for its Family/Student Theatre production SEUSSICAL: THE MUSICAL, November 18 & 19 by appointment only to students grades 3-12. Show dates for this exciting production are February 6-9, 2014.
The story, based off of the works of Dr. Seuss, centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge–not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to 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, the only one who recognizes “his kind and his powerful heart.” Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant in a story that makes you laugh and cry.
SEUSSICAL is under the direction of Student Theatre Director Brandon Thomsen with vocal direction by Jillian Wagner-Miller. Sharon Tieken serves as the stage manager.
Auditionees should prepare 16 measures of a song of their choice, preferably from any Broadway musical. Students are allowed to sing from SEUSSICAL, and are asked to bring the sheet music with them to auditions. A piano accompanist will be provided. Students will also be asked to read selections from the script. To view the script and a full listing of character descriptions, visit www.1qct.org.
All roles are available and all auditionees are welcome, regardless of prior experience with QCT. For more information, including important dates, audition tips, and audition requirements, visit 1qct.org. To schedule a 45-minute audition appointment, contact the QCT Box Office at (217) 222-3209.
