Oh, the places you'll act

"There are no limits to this musical," said senior Katie Looney, who is playing the Cat in the Hat. "This is really unlike most conventional musicals that are out there."

Also unusual is that there is really no spoken dialogue in the play. There are interludes between musical numbers, but "Seussical" is a musical in the truest sense.

That means choreographer Danielle Vincent, who teaches Spanish at the high school, has her work cut out for her.

"There are very few songs that don't have some sort of choreography to them," she said. "They really have to be moving while they're singing."

Vincent added that many of the young actors seem to really take to the subject matter. It can be a lot more tangible than other stories in theater, she said.

"I think that Dr. Seuss conjures up a lot of meaning for all of us," she said. "I just feel like everybody on the stage has a connection to Dr. Seuss."

"Seussical the Musical" runs from March 24 to 26 at 7 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on March 27. Tickets may be reserved online at www.stage700.org and will also be available one hour prior to showtime at the door.
