BELOVED MUSICAL FOR KIDS NOW @ THE GROWING STAGE

Seussical TGS 2012 IIISEUSSICALMusic by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
WHEN: March 9 to April 1 with performances Friday evenings at 7:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 4:00 PM
WHERE:

Tickets can be purchased by calling the TGS Box Office at 973.347.4946 or logging onto their website at www.growingstage.com.
Now one of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once On This Island) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters.
The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge—not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to 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, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant in a story that makes you laugh and cry.

FAIR IS FOUL…FOUL IS FAIR IN JERSEY CITY @ ASC
If you have a high school student, why not take him or her to see Macbeth in Jersey City. Parking is easy and nearby. And there is NOTHING like seeing Shakespeare being performed!
Here’s a bit of the review by Ruth Ross: REVIEW: “MACBETH” @ ACTORS SHAKESPEARE COMPANY IN JERSEY CITY
In my 34 years of teaching high school English, I've probably taught Macbeth to close to 3400 students, watched films versions countless times and attended about five live performances, but rarely have I seen as riveting a production as the one onstage at the Actors Shakespeare Company. If you think Shakespeare is boring or for intellectual types, get on over to the Westside Theatre in Jersey City where the joy of seeing the play performed live will make you (teenagers, college students and adults) a Bard-lover forever. Read more.

March 16 – April 1, Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 PM West Side Theater, 285 West Side Avenue, Jersey City
TICKETS: $30, $15 and $10 for adults, seniors and students. PAY YOUR AGE under 18. Mention this listing and get a discount. Buy tickets online and save 20% using the code POSTER. CLICK HERE
"Fair is foul and foul is fair..."  In one of Shakespeare's most brutal and cynical stories, virtually nothing is as it appears.  Ambiguity, secrecy, twisted prophecy and ambition collide as the characters hurtle towards their own delusion and destruction.  ASC's intense, small cast production creates a cauldron in which the darkest of human desires forge a most unhappy alchemy.  Arrive early!  Bard Banter discussion in lobby 30 minutes before curtain.
