CHAMBERSBURG – Looking for an evening of light hearted entertainment?
Don’t miss CAMS South drama club’s presentation of Seussical Jr. this weekend in the school auditorium at 1151 E. McKinley St.
The 60-minute musical, designed for Middle School aged performers, depicts Dr. Seuss’ best loved characters when they collide and cavort in this unforgettable musical.
The CAMS South cast/crew contains approximately 42 students led by Director Rebecca Hoover, along with Musical Director. Erin S. Bayko, Choreographer Caroline White and Alexis Franchi.
The cast, crew and directors have been diligently practicing for this production every day after school since the beginning of November, according to Hoover.
“This show is very different from ones we have put on in the past and has demanded a lot of work from our students,” she said.
“While it has been challenging it has been a lot of fun to put together! All ages will enjoy this show and be inspired by the message ‘a person’s a person no matter how small!’”
Seussical Jr., narrated in part by the whimsical Cat in the Hat (Anna Maun), centers around Horton the Elephant (Jacob Picking), who finds himself faced with a double challenge.
Not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (Bradley Stahl) and all the invisible Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Zoey Wolfe).
Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Jayla Womack) never loses faith in him.
Ultimately the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant in a story that makes you laugh and cry.
Performance dates in the CAMS South Auditorium are as follows:
Friday, February 22- 7 p.m.
Saturday, February 23- 2 p.m.
Saturday, February 23- 7 p.m.
Sunday, February 24- 2 p.m.
Food and drink concessions will be available at every show.
Proceeds support the drama club production fund. Tickets are $8.00.
