For 3 weeks in the summer, more than 30 TCjr participants, age 9-14, work with professional directors, choreographers, designers, technicians and performers experiencing and creating musical theatre. In addition to these professionals, college students studying the performing arts, along with exceptional high school students, will work alongside these young people, sharing their knowledge and experience, rehearsing and performing a professional-level summer stock production to be presented on the Theatre Charlotte stage. Recent TCjr presentations of Beauty and the Beast, Willy Wonka, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and The Lion King were all smash hits!

Seussical JR.

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
