ENCINITAS —The North County School of the Arts (NCSA) brings “Seussical, the Musical” to the big stage at 7 p.m. Aug. 17, Aug. 18, Aug. 25, plus 2 p.m. matinees Aug. 19, Aug. 25 and Aug. 26, at the Carlsbad Cultural Arts Center, 3557 Lancer Way off Monroe Street in Carlsbad.“ ‘Seussical, the Musical’ is a wonderful story about loyalty, friendship, and tolerance. And the score is full of so many memorable melodies,” said Doug Glener, Encinitas resident, author and father of cast member Gabriella Glener (Thing 2). “It is remarkable how The NCSA pulls professional-quality performances out of children and adults, and I’m sure the second coming of ‘Seussical, the Musical’ will be just as impressive.”
The cast features Winter Bassett, of Oceanside, in the lead role as The Cat in the Hat and Jack Blumenfeld, of Encinitas, as the role of Horton, the elephant. Brigitte Williamson, of Encinitas, will also portray Gertrude McFuzz, the quirky, lovesick bird with a one-feathered tail.
Director Pamela Laurent, said, “This is the most talented cast of singers and actors. It’s amazing to us that we have so many wonderfully talented youth in North County.”
