By Stephen Flaherty and Lyn Ahrens. Stage Artz. Glen Street Theatre (NSW). Until October 2.
This production of Seussical, and producer, Stage Artz, are both performing arts hybrids. Established as a performing arts school in 2001, with a separate theatre company emerging in 2006, in response to the needs of older students, the school and theatre company join forces each year for a charity musical. The venture has, thus far, raised $50,000 for the Children’s Hospital, in memory of a young Stage Artz student who died from cancer.
For the uninitiated, Seussical is a charming family musical based on the stories of Dr. Seuss.
