New theatre group brings Seussical the Musical to Camden

Whether you're a fan of Horton Hears a Who, The Grinch or Cat in the Hat, Seussical the Musical is a celebration of all things Dr Seuss.

The Camden Musical Society have chosen the iconic musical as their first-ever production in the region.

Seussical the Musical will launch at the Camden Civic Centre on Friday, March 5 with 12 shows featuring many locals in the cast and crew.

The society's production director Melissa Musgrave said the show was the beginning of something special for Camden.

"This is massive for our group as we are a not-for-profit stepping into the Sydney community theatre space for the first time," Ms Musgrave said.

"We have come together with a lot of experience and this is our chance to showcase the talent we have locally.

"We have a double cast, with cast and crew ranging from five to 72 years of age. To be able to have our first show in Camden is incredible.

"Seussical includes a range of Dr Seuss adventures like Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz and follows a storyline with Horton the Elephant. It will be a fabulous family production."

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said she was pleased to hear a new musical society had been established in Camden and was excited for what was ahead.

"The Camden area is full of talented people in the performing arts sector and to have a new musical society start with their first show in our area is just so special," Cr Fedeli said.

"Camden Civic Centre has been home to many great shows in the past and with the Camden Musical Society coming on board, I envisage a great future for both the venue and the group."

Camden Musical Society's Seussical show is now on sale.
