WOODVILLE, WI – Over 100 Viking Middle School students are hard at work preparing this year’s middle school musical, Seussical, Jr.  The production will also feature the 6th grade choirs who will play a supporting role to the cast and crew involved in the production.  

Seussical, Jr., written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, is based on the works of Dr. Suess.  The only thing more fun than reading a Dr. Seuss book is seeing a magical musical extravaganza—live, onstage with all the favorite Dr. Seuss characters! Cat in the Hat is the host and Horton the Elephant is the guide on a journey from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the World of the Whos, as a little girl with a big imagination proves that a person is a person no matter how small.

Featured in the cast are Ethan Rumpel as Horton the Elephant, Becca Stiller as Gertrude, Abigail Rumpel as JoJo, and Lauren Thompson as The Cat in the Hat.  They are aided by Madison Lawrence as Mayzie, Claire Finger as Sour Kangaroo, and Connor Mathison and Maeleea Larson as Mr. and Mrs. Mayor.

The schedule for performances is Thursday, March 23rd and Friday, March 24th at 7:00PM and Saturday, March 25th at 2:00.  There is limited seating available for all three shows, but it is recommended that you purchase presale tickets for this show.  You can do this by visiting the Baldwin-Woodville School District Webpage and clicking on the link provided, or by calling Chandra Lamb at (715) 698-2456 x. 3119.
