Sultana drama department to present 'Seussical the Musical'
Lovers of all things Dr. Seuss can enjoy a colorful, comprehensive tour of the beloved children’s authors books, thanks to the Sultana drama department, which presents “Seussical” on Oct. 20-23.
Directed by Sultana drama teacher Darin Grebel, “Seussical” will have a full music ensemble and accompanist conducted by Mike Rader.
“It has a large amount of strong leads,” Grebel said. And the lighthearted production is the perfect vehicle for the cast, in what Grebel describes as “a transition year.” “We have a lot of new kids. It’s a transition musical to bring in new talent.”
About the show, Grebel says, “It’s really a child friendly show. It’s Dr. Seuss. A person’s a person no matter how small, that’s the theme.”
