See the Seussical

Unknown
An adaptation of the Broadway musical for young audiences, Seussical™ brings together Dr. Seuss’s much loved books, Horton Hears a Who!, Horton Hatches the Egg, and the story of Gertrude McFuzz. Narrated by the Cat in the Hat, it centers on Horton the Elephant’s quest to save the people of Whoville, who live on a tiny speck of dust. This fantastical musical exemplifies the philosophy that “a person’s a person no matter how small. Seussical is at the Guild through August 10.

Roaming the Town

Over by the Car (20)
The streets of Charlottetown hold many visual opportunities for an artist. Though small in size, the city offers a variety of unique scenes; from the rotting wood shingles of a weathered home, to the pristine facade of a new complex. But for all its progress, Charlottetown holds value in maintaining the impression of the past. But there is no denying that this gradual, ever-changing scape will someday make this city unrecognizable. Roam is an exhibition of 20+ art pieces by artist David Garcia Jimenez. The show will feature mainly acrylic works that showcase candid scenes throughout the city. Roam is at the Guild through July 31st.

Atlantic Blue is the story of the great iconic songwriters from the region. Tara MacLean, a PEI born veteran of the stage, takes the audience on a journey into the past, telling the story of how music arrived and thrived on the east coast of Canada. Using film to tell the life stories of these brilliant writers, and then song to illustrate their work, Tara transports the audience to a place of deeper understanding and connection with Atlantic Canada and our most treasured music. The show is funny, heart wrenching and beautiful, with a new, up and coming guest artist each night to take us into the future, to where our music is heading. This show is a timeless thread that weaves through the ages. It will captivate and inspire. Atlantic Blue is at the Guild through September 13. Tickets are $30 and available online or at the Box Office.

Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar JR. will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
