Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that has lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters!
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant in a story the whole family will love.
Come play with us! Over the last few years, our program has been expanding - we're up to around 10 mainstage shows a year! - and to keep our current production teams from getting burned out, we're hoping to add to our awesome RYC team.
Right now, we're primarily looking for interested music directors, choreographers, and costumers who enjoy working with kids and young adults
to join our program, but would love to hear from anyone interested in teaching afternoon theater related skills classes (improv, chorus, stagecraft, etc.) as well.
All are stipend positions on a show-by-show basis.
If you or someone you know is interested, have them contact Robin LaCroix at (603) 672-1002 x20 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
ABOUT THE THEATER
Built in 2005 around the former home of the American Stage Festival, the Amato Center provides Southern New Hampshire with a year-round venue for cultural arts and community connection. The unique size of the 460 seat theater provides groups with an intimate, professionally equipped theater setting.
The theater is home to the Friends of The Amato Center, The Riverbend Youth Company, and the Milford Area Players.
As an integral part of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley the theater has served thousands of youth over the past decade through the theater arts, from performing on stage to learning to direct, run lights, even write and produce original plays.
The Riverbend Youth Company and Riverbend School of Theater Arts are programs of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley.
