Auditions: Seussical at LifeHouse Theater

Written by  LifeHouse Theater

Open auditions for Seussical, directed by Michael Milligan, will be Thursday, May 22, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at LifeHouse Theater, 1135 N. Church Street, Redlands.

Auditions will be held on a first come-first served basis. All are welcome and roles are open for men and women. Men are especially encouraged to audition. Those auditioning should be at least ten years old. Auditioners should bring a theatrical resume and a recent photo to leave with the audition panel. Those without a photo may have a picture taken at the auditions for a $2 fee.

Auditioners should also bring their own sheet music in the preferred key, and be prepared to sing a short selection of about 16 measures. A pianist will be provided but will not be able to transpose any sheet music. Auditions with CDs will not be accepted. Those without sheet music will be asked to sing “Happy Birthday” with the accompanist.

Seussical opens Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 7:30 PM and will continue on weekends through August 31, 2014. Performances are Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 2:15 PM (except Opening Night) and 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:15 PM. In addition to the weekend performances, there will be a special Thursday performance on August 28, 2014 at 7:30 PM.

The Cat in the Hat draws the audience into the story of Horton, an elephant who not only must protect a speck of dust containing the Whos from a world of naysayers, but also guard an abandoned egg. The power of loyalty, friendship, smily and community overcomes each challenge encountered. This is a Broadway classic that’s fun for the whole family!
