Seussical the Musical

Aug 2 – 4 @ 7:30 pm and 5 @ 2 pm

Tickets are Adults – $15, Students and Senior Citizens – $10, Children 12 and under – $5

Tickets are available at Tinderbox Coffee Roasters in Aberdeen, Harbor Drug in Hoquiam, Mocha Madness in Ocean Shores, Vacations by the Sea in Westport, online and at the theater box office one hour before each show.

The 7th Street Kids proudly present Seussical the Musical! Tony Award winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, 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.

Songs of the Silver Screen – presented by The Puget Sounders Acappella Men’s Chorus

Gray’s Harbor will quiver and ringing chords will make you shiver with delight when barbershop harmony comes to the 7th Street Theatre in Hoquiam at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 9. The program will feature a lot of great singing by the best performers of four-part a cappella vocalizing in the South Sound area.

The Puget Sounders men’s chorus, under the direction of Melanie McGuire, will present songs from memorable motion pictures, such as “Oliver!,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Lost in the Stars,” and “The Music Man,” that will start you humming along with the singers. You think you know what barbershop singing sounds like? Wait until you’ve heard the Puget Sounders!

Headlining the show will be Wink, an outstanding women’s quartet that has been a winner in regional competition against foursomes in the northwestern states and western Canada. Also on the program will be a men’s quartet, from Centralia and Chehalis, called the Two-Town Sound. The Olympia Sweet Adelines’ 45-voice women’s chorus, directed by Ted Chamberlain, will fill out the show bill. Their up-tempo rendition of popular songs is sure to please.

Moulin Rouge! (2001)

May 18 & 19 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets are $6

Tickets are available at City Drug, Crown Drug, Harbor Drug, online or at the door 30 minutes prior to the show.

The story takes place in 1899 in the infamous Moulin Rouge, a garish Paris night club where rich and poor men alike come to be entertained. But the film’s style is pure 2001. Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor star in what the late, great movie critic Roger Ebert described as “all color and music, sound and motion, kinetic energy, broad strokes, operatic excess… you’ll quickly know who is good and bad, who is in love and why–and then all the rest is song, dance, spectacular production numbers, protestations of love, exhalations of regret, vows of revenge and grand destructive gestures.”

Bringing Up Baby (1938)

May 5 @ 7:30 & 6 @ 2 pm

Tickets are $6.

Tickets are available at City Drug, Crown Drug, Harbor Drug, online, and at the door 30 minutes before the show.

One of the ultimate screwball comedies, this 1938 film has Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant in high gear as an excited, energetic heiress and a mild-mannered paleontology professor. The comically complicated plot involves a dinosaur skeleton, a thieving but talented terrier, a circus, a million dollar endowment, and a leopard named Baby, all working together to bring to mind the affectionate term, “screwball.”

Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton had fun at work delivering loads of laughs as the suffering assistants who outsmart their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” of a boss, Dabney Coleman. Parton made her big screen debut in this 1980 comedy and wrote and performed the hit title song, which won two Grammy Awards.
