Clare and Bartolo Cannizzaro, co-directors of the Academy for Dance & Theatre Arts in New Martinsville, will be directing, designing, and choreographing this year’s children’s theater production of
Seussical JR, produced by the Wayward Players and ADTA and presented by ArtsLink. Bart is from Vermont where he began teaching theater and dance at the age of 15. His first studio teaching experience was at Spotlight on Dance (now Spotlight Vermont) where he had the feeling he would be doing this for some time. Bart holds a BA in Theater and Small Business Management from the University of Vermont.

Clare trained at the Mid-Ohio Valley Ballet Company in Parkersburg, WV. She attended Point Park College and began touring and working in professional theater. Both have many theatrical regional, stock and touring credits. Bart notes, “With two of our sons in the show, and one kicking up the dust, Seussical JR will be a family friendly production from the opening curtain through to the final bows.”

Reserved seat tickets prices are $12 for adults and $8 for children under 12 and can be purchased on-line, with a major credit card, by visiting the ArtsLink website at www.artslinkwv.org. General Admission tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children under 12 and will be available at the door. All tickets may also be obtained by calling the ArtsLink office at 304-455-2278. The performances will be held on Friday, August 11 at 7:00, Saturday, August 12 at 3:00 and 7:00, and Sunday, August 13 at 3:00 at the Lincoln Theater.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, played by Rachel Price, narrates the story of Horton the Elephant (portrayed by Isaac Price), who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger 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.
