"Seussical - The Musical "
Auditions | August 6th & August 7th | 7pm
A musical perfect for the whole family, Seussical takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo. The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird.
Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. Eventually, the two fall in love. Now one of the most widely produced musicals in the country, Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love.
Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Charming Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
CAST OF CHARACTERS
The CAT IN THE HAT: Mischievous, fun and imaginative character. The CAT stirs things up, causing trouble, but always sets things right again, helping JOJO to discover the power of their own imagination as they create the story for the show together. This role of the CAT can be male or female. It requires an actor who is adept at physical comedy, comic cameos and improvising with the audience.
Vocal range top: F4 | Vocal range bottom: F2
JOJO: is a “Thinker”, The Mayor's child. JoJo is a Who that is always finding trouble. Bright, creative, and inadvertently mischievous. Possesses a wildly expansive imagination and finds solace in their friendship with Horton. This role requires an excellent singer/actor who is not afraid of movement!
HORTON: is a gentle giant. Our story's main character, he is a compassionate and gentle elephant. Commonly misunderstood because of his larger size. He is protective and loving of all creatures in the jungle. This role requires an excellent singer/actor who is imaginative, receptive and vulnerable on stage.
Vocal range top: F4 | Vocal range bottom: A2
GERTRUDE McFUZZ: Strong actress/singer/dancer who changes during the show from a neurotic, nervous and shy bird into an amazing grown up bird. Strong comedic actress.
Vocal range top: F5 | Vocal range Bottom: F3
MAYZIE LA BIRD: Strong belter/singer/dancer and is an excellent actress. The most beautiful bird in all of the jungle. Oblivious to her self-centered ways, she relies on her talent of manipulation, and intoxicating beauty, to navigate her way through life.
Vocal range top: Eb5 Vocal range bottom: G3
SOUR KANGAROO: Strong belter/singer/dancer. The 'leader' of the jungle. She is loud, brassy, and stubbornly set in her ways. A caring mother, but unabashedly sassy and soulful.
Vocal range top: F5, Vocal range bottom: F#3
THE BIRD GIRLS: 3 strong singers (LOTS OF HARMONY…think the Supremes!)/ great dancers. Maiyze’s side kicks. Fun roles that have MAJOR stage time!
THE WICKERSHAM BROTHERS: Strong singers/great dancers. (LOTS OF HARMONY!)
JUNGLE CREATURES: Terrific singers/fantastic dancers/great actors.
MR. AND MRS. MAYOR: JOJO’s parents. Strong actors/singers/dancers.
