BLACKWOOD – Dr. Seuss’ ‘Seussical the Musical’ will take the stage this month at Camden County College.
Cast members have been preparing for opening night at the Dennis Flyer Theatre on the Blackwood campus for several months.
Dr. Seuss’ best-loved stories combine in this enchanting musical presented by Mainstage Center for the Arts. Several familiar characters will bring the play to life, including Horton the Elephant, performed by Joe Penn, Cat in the Hat, portrayed by Shaun Levey, and little Jojo, played by Darby Pumphrey. “Seussical the Musical” demonstrates the family friendly acts of loyalty, friendship and love.
