SEUSSICAL Book by: Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty  Co­ Conceived by: Eric Idle  Lyrics by: Lynn Ahrens Music by: Stephen Flaherty  Celebrate the timeless, magical moments of Dr. Seuss in this fabulous Broadway musical  featuring characters from Horton Hears a Who!, Yertle the Turtle, and , of course, the  unforgettable and hysterical Cat in the Hat. Wonderful, up­beat music and clever lyrics combine to make SEUSSICAL THE MUSIAL a treat for the entire family!

 

 

JOJO is a "Thinker" ­­a smart child with a wild imagination. By the end of the show, he  learns what it means to be a responsible member of his world, using the power and  possibilities of his own 'Thinks.' 

 

Audition Monologue for JoJo – Please prepare for your audition? you do not need to  memorize but you are expected to perform your monologue

 

JoJo – (male or female)  “Sir, this war makes no sense,  Just one Think and you’d quit. Spreading butter up or down doesn’t matter a bit! We’ve crashed in the clover, there’s no help in sight, So why are you here teaching children to fight?  And not only that, sir, it’s Christmas on Who! I’d rather have Christmas than war, wouldn’t you?  So here is my sword and here is my hat. I’m going home! And that, sir, is that!”
