Bunnell S.T.A.G.E Presents Seussical the Musical

If you "do not like green eggs and ham," get ready to dare and heap your plate full with the Bunnell Student Theater Arts Guild of Entertainment (S.T.A.G.E.) production of Seussical the Musical. This musical, created by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, is based on the many works of Dr. Seuss; join us on odysseys from the Jungle of Nool to McEliott's pool, where your favorite characters leap off the page, onto the stage, and into the audience in a burst of color, style, and song. Our menu will delight the whole family "from the smallest of small, to the tallest of all.

In a musical medley of styles, Seussical borrows its plots and characters directly from Dr. Seuss children's books and tells his stories in the universal language of song, from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk. Leading the audience on an unpredictable adventure through the miniature houses of Whoville to the wild greenery of the Jungle of Nool, is the Cat in the Hat, played by senior Ryan Marcone. Following the mischievous cat is wide-eyed Jo-Jo, played by junior Chelsea Holtz. An imaginative kid whose "thinks" get her caught up in a whirlwind of far away places and creatures, Jo-Jo follows the cat into mayhem, bridging worlds to a classic love story of Horton the elephant, played by sophomore Collin Anderson, and Miss Gertrude McFuzz, played by sophomore Erin Williams. While lounging in the Jungle of Nool, Horton hears a cry for help from a tiny speck of dust and pledges to keep the miniature planet of Who out of harm's way. Horton is helped along the way by Gertrude in the moving parable of a love-struck bird trying to catch the eye of a charming, but unnoticing elephant.

Meanwhile, a wide-range of whimsical characters enter our story: the sultry Mayzie La Bird, played by senior Margaret Reilly; jungle diva Sour Kangaroo, played by senior Casey Miko and her spunky sidekick Young Roo, played by freshman Marybeth Condon. Narrating are a colorful, dancing entourage of birds, played by seniors Kaitlin Pecora, Rebecca Ford and Suyee On; juniors Tiia Fischer, Jenna Carrano, and Barbara Sowa. The Wickersham Brothers, an unruly band of monkeys, are played by seniors Dan Zold and Dane D'Elia, juniors Ian Jackson and Amanda Krapp, and sophomore Mia Gaspar. Senior L.J. Jepsen and junior Amber Martinez play Mr. and Mrs. Mayor of Whoville, as well as Jo-Jo's parents, trying to discover instructions on how to raise their trouble-making child. Yertle the Turtle, played by sophomore Ryne Pataki presides over the jungle along with sophomore Michael Peterson as the Grinch, and freshman Joey Welch as General Gengus Khan Schmitz.

The Bunnell High School S.T.A.G.E. presentation of Seussical the Musical is a true collaboration of art, talent and love. Bunnell High School's Theater Arts teacher and director, Meghann England, and Musical Director Aimee Radics head the project, along with many student leaders. Technical Director John Alusik and Stage Manager Dale Long, as well as choreographers Kaitlin Pecora and Tiia Fischer worked diligently behind the scenes. Casey Miko dually worked as set designer and Margaret Reilly braved her leading role as well as Assistant Director. Gratitude is eternally offered to the benevolent S.T.A.G.E parents, donating their time, energy, and resources to restore and maintain the legacy of Bunnell's S.T.A.G.E.

Seussical will be performed Friday, May 15th, at 8:00 PM; Saturday, May16th at 2:30 and 8:00 PM, and a matinee performance on Sunday, May 17th at 2:30. Tickets are $9 for adults and $7 for students, children, and senior citizens. They may be reserved by going to or by calling (203) 816-8241.
