CFCT announces Open Auditions for Seussical the Musical by the Tony Award winning team of Flaherty and Ahrens.

Stories of Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches the Egg as told by the Cat in the Hat feature many favorite stories, characters, and references from one of the greatest thinkers of all, Dr. Seuss!  Anything’s Possible in the world of Seuss.

Kyle Weber (Bring it On the musical) is the director and Rosemary Gast (Bring it On the musical, School of Rock, 13 the musical) is the vocal music director.  Performances are August 4 – 7, 2022.

There will also be an accompanist if you bring sheet music of a 32 measure excerpt.  If you need assistance in finding a song and track excerpt, please contact Rosemary at rosemarygast@gmail.com .
