Suessical Jr: Bard Ensemble

"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide with EDGE’s exuberance and joyful spirit to bring forth an unforgettable musical caper! Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger 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!

 Using EDGE’s past two musicals plan as a model, our production of Seussical the Musical will have both a Bard Ensemble and a Troubadour Ensemble rehearsing in separate times all coming together to make one amazing show and ensure that everyone is able to learn songs and choreography at a pace that works for the student!   But this year, there is more! This year we will also have both Ensembles getting rehearsal time on Wednesdays to ensure even more work can be completed and more time being spent on the show!
