Seussical the Musical, JR.

Next Generation Arts Council was thrilled to produce this production of Seussical the Musical, JR., opening in early March at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn. This delightfully entertaining show by musical writing team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty features a lively and talented group of young performers ages 10-15. This production marked the return of the Next Generation Junior Company, and played a sold-out run of 10 performances over two weekends.

Seussical the Musical, JR is a whimsical and fantastical musical based on the works of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. The musical weaves together some of the stories and characters from his books into a vibrant, colorful production that brings the imaginative world of Dr. Seuss to life on stage. This show is sure to captivate audiences of all ages with its catchy songs, playful characters, and heartfelt story.

The show was directed by award-winning director Fred Zirm, who returns to Arts on the Green for his tenth collaboration with the Next Generation Arts creative team. "I’m so proud to be bringing young performers back to the Arts Barn," said Zirm. "These opportunities are so important to the next generation of artists, and I’m honored to be a part of their journeys. Seussical the Musical, JR. is the perfect project for these students. This show is wonderfully fun and whimsical, but deceptively technical and surprisingly difficult to perform. The musical moves quickly, and it can be tough for even professional, adult actors to keep up. I’m incredibly proud of the company for their hard work.”
