Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its holiday production of SEUSSICAL, directed by Jen York, and choreographed by Eric Clausell

Auditions will be held Sunday, September 17th and Monday, September 18th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be set between the times of 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm-10:00pm on Monday. Callbacks will be held on Saturday, September 23rd. 

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping 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.

Please prepare an up-tempo song in the style of the piece. All roles are available and all ethnicities are welcome to audition. Youth roles are available for ages 8 and up.
