STARZ Youth Performance Troupe
Whether you are interested in trying out theatre for the first time, or you are experienced on stage, STARZ is the group for you! Our STARZ Youth Performance Troupe is for students in fifth through twelfth grades. Students enroll for the semester's production and auditions are held at the first meeting. Rehearsals take place Fridays from 4:30-5:45pm and Sundays from 2-5pm. The semester culminates with three performances over two days in the Sheldon Vexler Theatre.
This spring, STARZ will produce Seussical JR.!
Oh, the thinks you can think when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Co-Conceived by Eric Idle
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
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 he 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!
Performances will be Saturday, April 2 at 7pm and Sunday, April 3 at 2pm and 4:30pm.
