Perspectives Series Discusses Dr. Seuss’s World of Imagination

Tickets are on sale now for the SUU Department of Theatre Arts and Dance production of Seussical! The Musical. Performances are April 13th through 15th, and April 20th through 22nd at 7:30 p.m. in the Randall L. Jones Theatre.

Tickets are $5 for students, $8 for SUU faculty and staff, and $10 for the general public, and can be purchased by calling the ticket office at 586-7878.

Seussical! The Musical is a guided journey through the family-friendly world of Dr. Seuss and his beloved characters. The Cat in the Hat serves as emcee for the show, as the musical winds through a world of fun and focuses on the power of imagination. The show’s characters also highlight the importance of believing in oneself.

The Perspectives in the Arts series for Seussical! The Musical will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 14th in Auditorium Room 108, just before that evening’s performance. The presentation will discuss the connections between children, imagination, and literature, and will feature Crystal Bilyeu, Children’s Librarian at Cedar City Public Library. Local students Ben and Jessica Bahr will also join in the fun and discuss some of their favorite Dr. Seuss poems.

“I think Seussical! will be a wonderful opportunity for families to share in a cross-generational experience with Seuss characters that both parents and kids have grown up with,” explains Richard Bugg, Associate Professor of Theatre Arts and Dance and director of the show.

Seussical! The Musical will also be showing on April 13th and April 21st at 9:30 a.m. for school groups, with group rates available. Groups of students can attend these special performances, with rates at $3 per student for groups with up to 74 students, and $2 per student for groups of 75 or more. Teachers and chaperones are admitted at no charge.
