children’s theatre k – 2nd

Welcome to Roots’ School of Theatre  children’s theatre for young performers in grades kindergarten – 2nd.  This theatre acting class/production is designed for our early readers.  Our musical theatre productions are very special as we only accept 12 actors per production to ensure quality of instruction for each young actor.  All young performers are guaranteed a speaking role in the production as well as singing and dancing throughout the entire show.

“Seussical” Kids

January 2018 – May 2018

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical KIDS, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky StiffMy Favorite YearOnce on This IslandRagtime).

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in 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. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

"Theatre is immediate, it's alive, you're there with the audience, it can't be done again and again and again and again, it's organic" ~ Kim Cattrall
