More than 700 people were treated to the delightful “Seussical, Jr.,” during four performances last weekend at the Golden Chain Theatre.
Forty-three children, ages 7-17, put their hearts and souls into rehearsals during the four-week GCT summer camp to prepare for public performances. The 90-minute musical contained two separate casts because there was so much talent, and each child deserved to be noticed.
GCT’s artistic director Jennifer Piccolotti called “Seussical, Jr.,” a perfect family musical with a message of believing in one’s self and each other, adding that everyone would leave with a smile on their faces. She was true to her word.
“Our GCT 2016 theme is ‘Entertain ... Educate ... Empower,” and we believe we have accomplished this fully with this workshop ... these kids have worked so hard for four weeks learning the musical numbers ... and have truly enriched our lives,” Piccolotti said.
