The director has pre-cast a few roles for Seussical solely because of a time factor. Pentacle Theatre selected this fundraiser show later than we normally would (due to circumstances beyond the theater’s control), and we’re working to catch up on the timeline of preparing for this important show. In the spirit of transparency, we’re sharing (below) the list of roles that already have been cast, as well as the longer list of roles that are still available.

These roles have been pre-cast:

  • Horton
  • Gertrude
  • The General
  • Cat in the Hat
  • 3 chorus roles

These roles are still available:

  • JoJo
  • Sour Kangaroo
  • Baby Kangaroo
  • Mr. Mayor
  • Mrs. Mayor
  • Mayzie la Bird
  • Bird Girls
  • Wickersham Brothers
  • The Grinch
  • Yertle the Turtle
  • Multiple Cadets
  • Whoville Chorus
  • Thing One
  • Thing Two

Mid Sept – Monday-Thursday evenings 6-9 p.m. (some weekends possible)
Month of Oct: Monday – Thursday evenings 6-9 p.m. (some weekends possible)
Month of Nov/Dec: (minimal rehearsal, mostly on weekends with time off for Holidays)
