Seussical, the Musical, Jr.

Sixty-four children from around the Tampa Bay area will perform the beloved, "Seussical, the Musical, Jr" on July 21 and 22 in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center!

This is fun, family-friendly entertainment at a price families can afford. I like to take my children to these kinds of shows because it allows them to experience theater, and to see other children on stage - which they enjoy - and I can afford to take all of my kids and even a friend or two.

"Seussical, the Musical, Jr." is directed by Emilia Sargent, well known for her own performances on stage, voice lessons and theater instruction. Creative Loafing named her "Best of the Bay Critic's Choice Actress," as she has played lead roles in a variety of musicals, several industrial films, commercials and television shows.
