The Cedar Springs Community Players will present Seussical, Jr. on September 22-23 at 7 p.m. and a September 24 matinee at 2:30 p.m. at the historic Kent Theatre.

Directed by Lori Koester, with musical Director Eli Koester, 27 kids from 7 to 14 will perform. In addition to acting, they are helping prepare the set by painting all of the props and background scenery. Eli knows how to teach the music to the kids, plus he plays Horton.

Seussical is a musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty based on the stories of Dr. Seuss (mainly Horton Hears a Who!Horton Hatches the Egg and Miss Gertrude McFuzz) that debuted on Broadway in 2000. The play’s story is a complex amalgamation of many of Seuss’s most famous books. Seussical, Jr. is written especially for youth performers.

Tickets are $10 at the door and can be reserved by emailing ticketscscp@gmail.com.

Look for the CSCP’s next show, Harvey, scheduled for October.

Fine Arts at CTA


 

At CTA, we have a lot to be thankful for! Our school may be small, but we have many fun and exciting things that happen every year. For the past three years, CTA Creates (a group of mothers, fathers, and grandmas) has brought art into the classroom. The amazing Mr. Holtrop has brought music, choir and drama back into our hallways as well.

CTA Creates is a group of volunteer families who love the arts and want to share that love with the students of CTA. These parents have created an art curriculum and volunteered to teach the elementary students every other Thursday this school year. At the end of the year, CTA Creates will celebrate the students’ creativity by putting on an art gallery. This year, the art gallery will be held on May 20 from 5-7:00 p.m. at CTA. Please join us on that day to view art that the students created throughout the year as they learned about different art techniques, artists and had the opportunity to use a variety of mediums.

Mr. Holtrop has brought so much to CTA and on May 3 that could not have been any more evident. The kindergarteners through second graders put on their own concert/play and sang four songs from the musical “Seussical”. We had Dr. Seuss characters galore on stage singing their hearts out! The third through fifth graders also shared their love for music by singing songs about spring. Not only did these classes sing, but the fourth and fifth graders also showed off their musical abilities with by playing the recorders. Thank you, Mr. Holtrop all of your hardwork has paid off!
