Our Fall 2015 productions are currently full. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waiting list. Also, check out our Fall 2015 classes!
If you are returning for another season of shows at Winter Springs Performing Arts, you will see we are mixing it up this season! We will not be producing a specific “kids” or “Jrs.” show. We will be combining all groups and producing 2 separate full length productions! All students will audition for the season, and be placed in the production that is the best fit for them.
Auditions have changed too! Be sure to join us for our season opening parent meeting and director showcase on Tuesday, July 28 at 7:00pm for details and Q&A.
Seussical the Musical
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! TONY winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island and Ragtime) 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 colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the 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. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
Seussical is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables. This musical provides wonderful creative opportunities for set, lighting, and costume design. An alternate orchestration is available in keys more appropriate for a female Cat-in-the-Hat.
