ORLANDO REPERTORY THEATRE CONCLUDES THE 2018/2019 SEASON WITH SEUSSICAL
Orlando Repertory Theatre (Orlando REP) proudly announces the final production of their 2018/2019 Season with the TYA production of Seussical. Public performances run through Sunday, May 12 with tickets beginning at $15. Seussical is presented by Universal Orlando Foundation and OUC – The Reliable One. The 2018/2019 season is generously presented by AdventHealth For Children.
Seussical bursts onto the stage in a fantastical, spectacular, musical extravaganza by Tony Award-winning composers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Beloved characters – including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, and the Whos – collide in a journey spanning from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus. As Horton struggles to protect the Whos from injustice while sheltering an abandoned egg, will the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community triumph? The Cat in the Hat is your magical master of ceremonies in this sensational smorgasbord of Seuss stories.
The cast includes Dustin Batchelor, Nicholas Bethencourt, Colton Chase Brooks, Lindsay Carter, Ralph Prentice Daniel, Sunny Gay, Laurel Hatfield, Kayla Lopez, Noel- Marie Matson, Christopher Payen, Savannah Rucks, Rhyse Silvestro, Devin Skorupski, Nyeshia Smith, Michael Thibodeau, and Valerie Torres-Rosario.
The creative team includes direction and musical direction by Steve MacKinnon, choreography by Spencer Morrow, scenic design by Joe C. Klug, costumes by Genevieve V. Beller, lighting by Alyx Jacobs and Andrew Mulkey, sound by Anthony Narciso, and props by Tara Kromer.
