Here's your chance to leap into the pages of Dr. Seuss and actually become one of his characters! A musical production of Seussical the Musical is going down in California and they're holding auditions until September 23, 2006!

Seussical the Musical - From Seuss to Song

Seussical the Musical is about an imaginative boy named Jojo who discovers a strange red and white striped top hat. He wonders what kind of person would wear such a hat, when The Cat in the Hat magically appears! As they sing and jump from one adventure to another, famous Seussian characters come and go, including The Whos, Horton the Elephant and Gertrude McFuzz.

    There is someone in my class and she makes a comment about everything the teacher says and she always feels the need to make everything about her. I can't stand her. I hope I won't have any classes with her next year.

    Dear Dish-It, My little sister, Sydney, ruins EVERYTHING! She spills secrets, messes up auditions, and even feeds bits of homework, to the FISH!  Once, my crush came over while my parents weren't home. I was babysitting Sydney when I forgot we had to finish a school project, me and my crush. When he got to my house, My sister told him about how i use to have BRACES and a bright pink TEDDY BEAR! How can i try to cooperator with her, when i just want to strangle her! (my crush still is friends with me by the way) From, Jez {}

    Well you won't want to volunteer because that's unpaid.  Your profile says you're 11 which means you can't get a real job but you can babysit (you'll need first aid training for this), or you can pet sit or do yard work. Those are good jobs to have at your age.
