I’ll be conducting Seussical at McIntyre Hall (Mount Vernon, WA) in November 2006. The show will be produced by Meta Performing Arts – website at http://www.metaperformingarts.org/ – Please visit their website for upcoming details and info on the show.

AUDITIONS will be August 7 and 8 2006 at Mount Vernon Presybterian Church. This is a kid’s show with lots of fun parts for children of all ages to participate in. We’ll have a great live band and I’ll be helping the kids with their vocal parts. Please encourage your children to audition for this show. It’s wild, it’s wacky, it’s crazy and it’s VERY fun.

MUSICIAN NOTES:
Please see below for rehearsal schedule and show dates.

1 – Orchestra will be ON STAGE on platforms which are 8-36 inches high.
2 – Musicians will wear base outfit of black and white, and can add on with wigs, ties, accents. Ebay has nice accessories that are very inexpensive. Please check with Conrad before you buy anything to make sure it is “Seuss” style.
3 – Musicians may do pre-show skits making funny sounds or entertaining with their instruments. We encourage you to dress up your instrument in “Seuss” style.
