Get out and watch Village Theatre KIDSTAGE perform Seussical KIDS!
“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
I would recommend arriving at the Wetmore Plaza early, because this show gets PACKED with families, local preschools, and random passersbys. It’s free to watch and if having your children completely enthralled for 40 minutes for free isn’t enough, imagine how cute your kids performing their own after show performance in your living room will be. Oh the thinks you will think.
If you have seen Seussical, you know this show is a riot, but this production in particular is super easy to get swept up in. Being the KIDS version the script is super pared down and the performers bring it to life with endless high energy. A big bravo to Braden Cook and Sarah Bennett, this was probably my favorite Jojo and Cat in the Hat Combo I have ever seen…. and I have seen a lot of Seussicals.
If you haven’t seen Seussical, expect a musical extravaganza of many important Seuss characters, primarily Horton, The Whos, and the Jungle of Nool. (And keep an eye out for the fun little Moana easter egg too!) The minimal set KIDSTAGE chose to use for this production really lets the characters shine, which is important because the costumes are pretty amazing and the actors are all extremely talented.
Beyond all the whimsy of this show, the lessons that Dr. Seuss intended for these stories are definitely apparent. Seussical is a one of a kind show, and it has always retained a special place in my heart because of its timeless ability to pull people together and promote some really big important ideas in a great way for its young audiences.
Having attended past plaza productions, I was surprised by how clearly I could hear the entire show and follow along so easily, KIDSTAGE has definitely perfected their outdoor sound system. It would be a shame to miss this fantastic production, and if you are looking for something to do on a sunny Friday afternoon, I am hard pressed to think of a better use of your time than supporting a group of young artists who are honing their craft and excited to share it with their community.
