  • April 14 • 6:30-9 pm
  • Callbacks: April 15 • 7 pm

To Audition: 

Please bring sheet music and be prepared to sing 32 bars, but no more than one minute, of a fully-memorized Broadway style song that showcases their vocal range and in a style that is consistent with the character you are auditioning for. This should be something that you are very comfortable with, not something you just learned the day before! Please mark your selection. An accompanist will be provided. A cappella singing will not be allowed.

You may be asked to read from the script and perform a brief dance combination taught at the auditions.

All roles are voluntary.

Rehearsals: Rehearsals will be held three nights per week and some Sundays.

Performances: July 2021

Roles: 

  • THE CAT IN THE HAT – (male or female, strong actor, character singer) The essence of mischief, fun and imagination. The Cat stirs things up, causes trouble, but always sets things right again. This actor should have strong comedic abilities, flexible physicality, strong mover, and is comfortable improvising with an audience
  • HORTON THE ELEPHANT – (male, strong singer/actor) A big-hearted guy who is steadfast and responsible and always tries to do the right thing for his friends. He does his best to fight for the tiny Who world that is in danger.
  • GERTRUDE McFUZZ – (female, strong singer/actor) She is very self-conscious that her one-feather tail isn’t glamorous enough. She goes to great lengths to try to impress Horton.
  • MAYZIE LA BIRD – (female, strong singer/actor/dancer) She is brassy, stylish and vain. 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.
  • SOUR KANGAROO – (female, strong singer/actor) She’s a loud, brassy character with a ton of attitude. Gospel / R&B vocal styling a plus. Along with the Wickershams, she loves to pick on Horton. 
  • JOJO – (male or female, strong singer/actor/dancer) Jojo is a “Thinker”– a smart kid with a wild imagination but always feeling out of place. Jojo eventually use his/her imagination to save the Who planet. (Age 8-12)
  • MR. & MRS. MAYOR – (male and female, character singers/actors) Jojo’s nervous and over protective parents. They love Jojo, but are unsure how to raise a difficult child in a difficult world.
  • GENERAL SCHMITZ – (male or female, character singer/actor)A bumbling leader of a military academy and tries to turn Jojo into a ‘man’
  • THE BIRD GIRLS – (female, strong singers/dancers) The popular girls in any school–a clique of “back up birds” who narrate much of the action. 
  • THE WICKERSHAM BROTHERS – (male and/or female, character singers/actors, strong dancers) A group of comic, mischievous monkeys who like to play pranks and tease Horton. They need strong movement/dancing and physicality.
  • THING ONE AND TWO – Thing One and Thing Two are human twins from The Cat in the Hat book. They were released from the box that the cat brought in to introduce to Conrad, Sally and the fish.
  • ENSEMBLE – will play many roles – Jungle Creatures, Whoville citizens, Cadets, Hunches, circus characters, Fish, and Hunters. Parts of Vlad Vladikoff, the Grinch and Yertle the Turtle will be chosen from the Ensemble. Seeking strong dancers and singers. Looking especially for strong skills in roller-skating, ballet (pointe), and any “circus” skills. Ability to ride a unicycle is an automatic plus. (14 and UP)
About the Show: 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.

Once-Upon-a-Zoom-1Once Upon a Zoom

Written by Edith Weiss

Directed by Susie Rayburn

Showings:

  • Fri., April 30 • 8 pm
  • Sat., May 1 • 4 pm

Once Upon a Zoom is a heartwarming, fun play performed by a talented cast of 7th-12th graders and is a great family-friendly show.

Ava wants friends, which is why she agreed to work with some classmates on a project about the modern relevance of fairy tales.  But as Ava finds herself once again waiting for her partners to show up online and feeling like she has to do all the work herself, she’s suddenly “Zoom-bombed”…  by fairy tale characters! 

Ava soon gleans a lesson from timorous Cinderella, brash Maid Marion, besotted Robin Hood, and evil Evil Queen:  her story is her own to write.  Newly determined not to be taken advantage of, Ava is ready to tell the others that their partnership is over.  Instead, she comes to find that her classmates have also learned a lesson about just how relevant fairy tales can be.

Once Upon a Zoom is being produced through special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service.


Online Access: $10

STRINGS IN THE SPRING
May 23 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Strings in the Spring logoViolinist Vivek Jarayaman joins pianist Franz Mantini in the 2021 edition of Strings in the Spring at the Carrollwood Cultural Center. The eclectic program begins with the musicians collaborating in Mozart’s Sonata in B-Flat Major, K. 378, and followed by each taking a solo turn on their respective instruments; Mr. Mantini playing a Nocturne and Etude by Frederic Chopin and Mr. Jarayaman performing Ysaye’s Sonata #4. They will then finish together in the Suite for Violin and Piano by William Grant Still. Long known as   the “Dean of African-American Classical Composers”, Still’s suite takes the listener on a journey with the outer movements’ inimitable rhythms, blues, and jazzy discourse framed around the serene middle movement reminiscent of a lullaby.
