‘Seussical’ starts this weekend

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Summer 2012 has found St. John Theatre filled with the characters of Whoville as the theater’s production of “Suessical” promises to take us on a musical adventure through Whoville with all the characters Dr. Suess introduced to us as children. Don’t mistake this production as a children’s show, as adults will have a great time, and kids old enough to have read Dr. Seuss books will love it, too. Throughout the play, the Cat in the Hat pops in and out of scenes, narrating, playing numerous characters, and helping the younger members of the audience keep track of the plot.

Seussical is directed by SJT veteran Darryl P. Clement, who will again awe audiences by the splendor of the set, music, costumes, dancing, singing and the phenomenal cast that will capture you from the first downbeat to the bows. Advanced tickets can be purchased from Allied Express in LaPlace, or at the theater box office before each show. Show dates are, July 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28 at 7:30p.m., and July 22 at 2:30 p.m. Adults, $15, and children 12 years old and under, $10. Follow on the website, www.stjohn
