Lane Cove Youth Talent in Seussical Jr
Lane Cove Theatre Company’s annual children’s production delves deep into the whimsical, magical world of Dr Seuss – and pulls a cat out of a hat during November 2018.
Seussical Jr is the award-winning hit Broadway show that brings many characters of the universally-loved children’s author into a fun, tuneful and toe-tapping musical about loyalty, friendship and the power of imagination.
Director Trent Gardiner (The Snow Queen, Cinderella, King Arthur, Pinocchio) brings Seussical Jr lovingly to the Lane Cove stage. Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, Yertle the Turtle and all of your favourite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life in a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Anastasia, Once on this Island).
Friendship, family and community are challenged but ultimately emerge triumphant in this unforgettable musical caper boasting a large cast of talented youngsters from across the north and north-west of Sydney.
Directed by Trent Gardiner with musical director Chelsea Taylor, choreographer Emma Ashley and assistant director Sarah Edwards, Seussical Jr features Josie Segal as Horton, Jeremy Segal as the Cat in the Hat, Leah Francis as Gertrude McFuzz, Madeleine Biddle as Mayzie LaBird, Hugo Allen as JoJo, Alexei Belchenko & Haydon Ashley as Mr and Mrs Mayor, Arnav Kapoor, Benjamin Walsh, Harry McMahon & Owen Emeleus as the Wickersham Brothers, Holly Miller, Valeria Gonzalez-Lopez, Charlotte Pugh & Eve Emeleus as the Bird Girls, Piper Kup-Ferroth as Sour Kangaroo, Rodney Stewart (the only adult in the show!) as Yertle the Turtle, Daniel Timmins as the Grinch, plus an ensemble of Grace Patterson, Zara Gurney, Isobel Dias, Eloise Cardew, Daniel Rees, Scarlett O’Connor, Natalie Shaw and Samantha Beregi.
