Favorite stories of the famous Dr. Seuss will come to life on the stage at Laxson Auditorium on the Chico State Campus next week, in the musical "Seussical Jr." ... featuring the Blue Room Young Company.
The cast is made up of more than 36 talented children between the ages of 6 and 16.
This is the 13th time Chico Performances has teamed up with the Blue Room Young Company, but new this time is the addition of a live van. Josh Hegg is the Music Director and Butte Community College student Kaila Davidson is Choreographer.
The cast has been working hard on the show since early July. You'll meet characters like "Mayzie LaBird" and "Gertrude McFuzz" ... with stories from Horton Hears a Who and the Cat in the Hat.
The performance is Friday September 18th at 7:30 p.m. in Laxson Auditorium. There will be two performances for school field trips earlier that day. The cast will also perform for patients at Enloe Rehabilitation Center, and at the Chico World Music Festival on Saturday, September 12th.
Tickets are $15 for Adults, $13 for Seniors and $8 for Youth. You can buy them at the University Box Office at the corner of 3rd and Chestnut streets, by calling (530) 898-6333 or online at www.ChicoPerformances.com.
