I can see that you’ve got quite a mind for your age! Why, one Think and you dragged me Right onto the stage!
Now, I’m here, there is no telling what may ensue With a Cat such as me, and a Thinker like you!
Oh, the Thinks you can think! Oh, the Thinks you can think If you’re willing to try…
Think invisible ink! Or a gink with a stink! Or a stair to the sky…
If you open your mind, Oh, the Thinks you will find Lining up to get loose…
Oh, the Thinks you can think, when you think about Seuss!
– The Cat in the Hat, OH THE THINKS YOU CAN THINK, Seussical the Musical
Dear McKinley Families,
McKinley Theatre Company (MTC) is excited to announce that our 2016 production will be Seussical Jr.! Performances will be December 8th & 9th in the McKinley Auditorium.
This musical is based on Dr. Seuss books filled with songs and rhyming dialogue. There will be several group production numbers as well as character roles in which all cast members will shine.
MTC expects to hold auditions in late September. The cast list will be announced followed by a parent meeting that same week. Our volunteer-run program can accept up to 70 students, including stage crew. Grades TK-3rd are more likely to be placed in group numbers. Lead roles will most likely be cast from grades 3-5.
Cast and crew are expected to commit to scheduled rehearsals and performances. Once the cast announcement is made, all families will be presented with a variety of opportunities to contribute to the success of the show.
We encourage interested students to start preparing now for auditions.
To see examples of Seussical Jr. production numbers, please browse the web and look up additional information through the publishing company, Music Theatre International, or see the following links:
More details will be announced the first week of school!
