All rehearsal time is important due to the 10 cast members being on stage for the entire show and
performing in all the musical numbers. This is an ensemble piece and requires a company that evolves
from being individuals with their own unique personalities into a family of one. Many messages are
being told that are very relevant still today. Godspell is definitely an audience favorite and can be loads of fun to heavy serious situations for all the performers on stage.
The show setting is going to take place in a private city park/garden with a Spanish style flair and the
action taking place on all the OSP stage levels with some limited interaction on the main floor. The
crucifixion will take place upstage at the Main Gate that enters into the garden with tech and lighting
effects being front and center.

SYNOPSIS: 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.
