Berkshire Theatre Group Announces 9th Annual Children's Theatre Production and Auditions for Seussical

Berkshire Theatre Group and Artistic Director/CEO, Kate Maguire, are excited to announce the 9th Annual Children's Theatre Production: Seussical at the Colonial for the 2014 Summer Season. Seussical, directed by Travis G. Daly, opens on August 7 and closes August 17.

Tickets to Seussical are $25-$30 for Adults and $15-$20 for Children 16 & Under. Tickets may be purchased in person at the Colonial Ticket Office at 111 South Street, Pittsfield; at the Fitzpatrick Main Stage Ticket Office at 83 East Main Street, Stockbridge, by calling (413) 997-4444 or online at www.BerkshireTheatreGroup.org. All plays, schedules, casting and prices are subject to change.

For the 9th Annual Children's Theatre Production, Dr. Seuss' most-beloved stories spring to life in one magical musical with all of his classic characters: Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, the Whos of Whoville, Gertrude McFuzz, Jojo and more! In this unforgettable tale of friendship, love, family, and community, The Cat in the Hat narrates a whimsical story of Horton the Elephant who must guard a lonely abandoned egg and protect the Whos from all danger! With flying stunts by the actors, unforgettably fun songs and dance, Seussical the musical dives into a fantastic and incredible crazy-quilt adventure exploring the wonderful power of imagination, determination and positive thinking! 

The goal of BTG's community production is to bring together children and adults who learn from each other all in the midst of collaboration and creativity. Last year's 8thAnnual Children's Theatre Production of Peter Pan featured over 100 talented adults and children from the community. Proceeds from this production benefit many children in Berkshire county beyond those who participate in and enjoy Seussical

Ticket proceeds benefit BTG PLAYS!, Berkshire Theatre Group's Year-Round Education Program. At the heart of BTG PLAYS! is a passionate commitment to bring live theatre and all its inherent excitement and creativity to children throughout our region. In addition, this is the first theatrical experience on a professional stage that many of these children will have the opportunity to participate in.  We hope this experience will stimulate a life-long love of theatre and help produce the next generation of playgoers, if not actors or other theatre professionals.
