Announcing Auditions For Seussical

Directed and Choreographed by Steven L. Flom

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss friends. Bursting with frivolity and imagination, the colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. The musical score is top notch and reinforces the show themes of kindness, acceptance and self-esteem includes “Oh, the Things You Can Think”, “It’s Possible,” “How Lucky You Are,” and “All For You”.

Auditions will be held at The Allenberry Resort, 1559 Boiling Springs Road, Boiling Springs, PA 17007.
