Student Productions

ATMTC offers students the experience of performing in fully produced student productions, ensemble showcases and recitals.  These intensive performance and training opportunities are for motivated and talented musical theater students.  Student Productions of the ATMTC Academy complement the Common Core State Standards in English-language arts and mathematics for grades K-12, providing a challenging outlet for students to develop the skills necessary to be successful, professional performers - including self-discipline, teamwork, problem solving, and self-confidence. 

 
Seussical the Musical

Over the course of this session, students will have daily technique training and rehearsals which will culminate in a full stage production on Adventure Theatre’s professional stage in Glen Echo Park. This program is open enrollment. Students will audition on the first day of the program


About the Show:
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

 

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

 

Seussical is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables. This musical provides wonderful creative opportunities for set, lighting and costume design. An alternate orchestration is available in keys more appropriate for a female Cat in the Hat.
