 Burlington Post review of Seussical!

A selection from a recent  Burlington Post review of our production of Seussical,  from Vic Hyde:



Seussical delivers colourful, kid-friendly show

Seussical, with music by Stephen Flaherty and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, is the current offering by Centre Stage Productions. The musical is, of course, based on the works of children’s author Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. The story borrows elements and characters from several of his books. It centres around Horton the Elephant (Adam Falcone) and his quest to protect the people of Who-ville who live on a speck of dust. The story line is held together by a narrator in the form of The Cat in the Hat (Nick Marquis) who often works with his young friend JoJo (Kailin Brown). Among the many other characters who live in the Jungle of Nool and who cannot believe that Horton can actually hear a Who are Gertrude McFuzz (Beth Marquis), Mayzie LaBird (Sara Jeffries), Sour Kangaroo (Jenn Zdriluk) and General Gengus Khan Schmitz (Peter Hoffman).

From Who-ville we meet the Mayor (Matt Bishop) and his wife (Melisa Parisi) and there are another dozen or so performers who sing, dance and obviously have a great time in this sung-through musical that has the occasional piece of rhyming dialogue to help things along.

Costumes, set pieces and stage props are all highly colourful and indeed, colourful is certainly a good way to describe this Centre Stage version of the Seuss musical. Of course, you need more than just colour to make a show like this work and, happily, this version has it in spades.

Director Helen Zdriluk has not only brought together a lively, enthusiastic cast, she moves her people around the Stars Academy stage extremely well.

The result is a kid-friendly show (for kids of all ages) that is certainly one of the most enjoyable Centre Stage productions I can recall seeing.

If you have a chance (and perhaps a young child or two) you should consider getting yourself to the Stars Academy Theatre on Blair Road, off Mainway, where Seussical will continue its happy way on Sept. 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m.

For tickets at $17 for adults and $12 for seniors and students, call 905-634-7324 or visit www.centre-stage-productions.com.

About

SEUSSICAL, a musical for the whole family, is an exuberant theatrical experience with upbeat music and exciting staging. Based on the model of “Into the Woods,” which combines several fairy-tale characters, SEUSSICAL creates the witty, wild and whimsical world of Dr. Seuss and combines many of the author’s characters and stories into one musical tale. It reveals a world where anything’s possible from an elephant in a tree, to a person too tiny to see, to a heroic child and dreams running wild. The show is a magical, musical world where helping a friend, never giving up and keeping a promise come true. The Tony Award winning team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (“Ragtime” and “Once on this Island”) created the book and the score that includes pop, gospel and R&B numbers. The story centres around Horton the Elephant who becomes the laughing stock of the jungle because he believes in something that no one can see and because he is dedicated to protecting people smaller than himself. It will take Horton, the Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz and a gaggle of characters to bring harmony back to their world. Many of these characters have never met one another before, but they meet in SEUSSICAL. By the end of the show, some will fall in love, some will have desperate adventures, and some will save the world.

Dr. Seuss believes in helping a friend, in not giving up, in keeping a promise. He believes in the value and dignity of others, in working to preserve the natural world, and he believes that peace is the ultimate ideal, among nations and in every heart. He also believes in the pure power of the imagination. You will find all these serious concerns at the heart of SEUSSICAL.  High energy staging and special effects make this a contemporary fantasy for all ages that is really fantastic and exciting. Its story illustrates that imagination can take you anywhere, and that the “thinks” that we think can determine the paths that we follow. It is the story of adventure, friendship, family and self-discovery, and its story certainly resonates today. A contemporary theatrical form of high energy and great dramatic power, SEUSSICAL will touch your heart, tickle your funny bone, thrill your senses and keep your toes tapping.
