HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts will present on March 17 the musical “Seussical,” the first of two scheduled “Pajamas and Play” presentations for its youngest fans.
Kenneth Boulton, interim director of the Columbia Theatre, explained that “Pajamas and Play” is a fun series designed to make theater performances accessible and appealing to children. Kids are invited to wear their pajamas, robes and slippers to the 60-minute performance. The second Pajamas and Play presentation, “The Jungle Book,” is scheduled April 14.
“Our Pajamas and Play series has become a family favorite. The cookies and milk combined with this fun children’s theatrical production will be sure to create memories that last a lifetime,” Boulton said. “Parents interested in a quality theater experience for their young children won’t want to miss it.”
With a kid-friendly curtain time of 6:30 p.m., “Seussical” stars the Cat in the Hat as host and emcee and is the biggest show ever for TheatreworksUSA. Adapted from the Broadway version, this musical adaptation features 13 actors and enhanced production values.
