Theatre Arts Division
The Stapleton Theatre Company is the Theatre Arts division of the Stapleton School of the Performing Arts. It is brought to you by the same team who operated the San Anselmo Town Players as part of the San Anselmo Recreation Department from 2001–2006. The same type of program, artistic quality, production values, instruction, nurturing and care that you came to know from the Town Players continues at Stapleton Theatre Company.
The Theatre Arts Division produces an annual musical production of A Christmas Carol and a fully-staged multi-generational musical theatre production each May, directed by resident director Bruce Vieira with Musical Director Judy Wiesen and Choreographer Jenny Rand.
Seussical – The Musical
Directed by Bruce Vieira
Musical Direction by Judy Wiesen
Choreography by Jenny Rand
Dr. Seuss' lovable, familiar characters jump from the page to the stage in this magical musical! Favorite characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Lazy Mayzie, Gertrude McFuzz and the Whos of Whoville come to life in this adaptation, co-conceived by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle.
Seussical's JoJo, a child and "thinker of strange and wonderful thinks" leads the audience through a colorful story that resounds with relevant themes: believing in yourself, keeping promises and the rewards of being an independent thinker. Simple enough to be understood by children and universal enough to be meaningful to adults, Seussical features an amazing upbeat score with a range of musical styles from Latin to pop, swing to gospel and R&B to funk!
May 8th – 17th
