For anyone who’s ever wondered what it would be like to hang out with The Cat in the Hat or visit the Whos in Whoville, Chattanooga State’s theatre and music departments will present “Seussical,” a musical that illuminates the pages of Dr. Seuss books, Nov. 11-13.
“It’s not your typical musical,” said Savannah Mazda, who plays The Cat in the Hat. “There are all of these fantastical creatures with their own special part.”
The production will be shown on stage at the Humanities and Fine Arts Building at Chattanooga State Community College from Nov. 11-13. The Friday and Saturday show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday show will begin at 2:30 p.m. Admission costs $10 for adults, $6 for students and is free to Chattanooga State students, employees and staff.
According to director Jeffery Parker, the interactive show is family-friendly and entertaining for people of all ages. There are so many different layers, subplots and themes that range from using your imagination to the implications of raising someone else’s child, he said.
The audience will also get the rare chance to see the set change and move with the scenes as the first ever ellipses unit is incorporated into the play’s set design, said cast member Jeremy Wilkins. The design incorporates different levels and fun colorful lighting, he said.
“It looks just like a Dr. Seuss book,” said cast member Cameron Goss. “It’s the cutest musical, it has a good message and it’s a lot of fun.
