Each year, Salem College’s Pierrettes put on two productions: the fall play and the spring musical. This year the spring musical is Seussical The Musical, a play which incorporates many of Dr. Seuss’s famous children’s tales. The play is written by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. It first debuted on Broadway in 2000 and has been a favorite of musical goers ever since.
“It’s a funny, sweet, and charming show that’s fun for everyone.” Sophomore Kerri Hughes said. Hughes plays Sour Kangaroo, who is described as a tyrannical marsupial.
The play will include students of all years. First year Peyton Parker, for instance, will be Jojo, a young Who from Whoville. Senior Spira Baker is playing the ever famous Horton. Abby Parsons, junior, will be Gertrude McFuzz, Horton’s love interest of sorts.
“We have worked really hard to put this show together and all that work is paying off–it’s a wonderful production and we can’t wait for people to see it,” said Hughes when asked why students show come to see the musical.
Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for non students. It runs from March 12 to March 14 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night.
