Let the music move you – right into Tryon Fine Arts CenterPublished 4:45pm Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Always known for their fantastical storylines and imaginative worlds of color, whimsy and quirky characters, Dr. Seuss’ tales come to life before our eyes beginning this Thursday, July 19 at the Tryon Fine Arts Center.
“Seussical: the Musical” attracts to the stage a host of energetic youth ready to display their talents in a delightfully fun way.
This is more than a push for you to go see another production. What the community needs to understand about this performance in particular are the lessons our local youth have learned by being a part of the summer youth theater program.
Not only has it likely brought some kids out of their shells, but it’s taught them responsibility to others – their fellow cast and crew rely on them to show up on time and be prepared. It has also taught them valuable skills they might use down the road – public speaking, organization and even construction skills as they helped build sets.
These youth have been anything but idle this summer as they prepared to dazzle the community. They have in fact been learning valuable life lessons in the same tradition as hundreds of other kids who have gone through the summer youth program since 1970.
This year’s show opens Thursday, July 19 and runs through Sunday, July 22. For information about “Seussical,” call 828-859-2466 or visit www.tltifo.org.
