Seussical Production
Seussical Production

Seussical Production is BDCS’ end of year performance for our Groovy, Starburst, Pizzazz, Fierce, Diva and DanceFit students in Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Vocal, Acting and Production classes.  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.

Rehearsal is Saturday, July 22nd from 10:45AM to 12:45PM

Rehearsal will be held at BDCS studio in the red and blue studios.  This rehearsal is for students to understand the logistics of the show.  We will be running through the entire show.  This is the only time we will be able to run the entire show before the performers are on stage, so it is important for every performer to be present for this rehearsal.  There are many sections where multiple classes are on stage and dancing together.  This rehearsal will be the first time they get to run it all together so we can make the show on stage seamless.  This rehearsal is extremely important for a smooth and stress-free experience for all.  Please make sure your performer is in attendance for this rehearsal.  This is a “Dress Rehearsal” and students should wear their costumes for the show!  Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of rehearsal to prepare; costume on shoes on and ready to start at 10:45AM!
