Call for Artists: Auditions - DEADLINE :  

Based on the children’s stories of Dr. Seuss and one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life our favorite Dr. Seuss characters in this production for all ages.
