Seussical Cast Member Profiles   Leave a comment

Hello  Friends- This year we are doing something different to promote the PTA play and doing cast member profiles. These will  be posted on the PTA Play Facebook page starting sometime next week but since many of them are completed now I figured I would post them here as well.      Mark the dates down on your calendars  April 10-13th at Souhegan High School.  7pm evening shows  2pm matinees. You won’t want to miss it.

Helen  St Cyr is an 8th grader at Amherst Middle   School.  She loves doing the PTA  Plays!   Previously she has been in   Children Of Eden. Music Man  Oklahoma and Meet Me In St Louis.  She is excited to be in Seussical. She is a Who Child in Who Family #1.   What she enjoys the  most  about playing a Who is  that the  Whos are so colorful and their story is both exciting and tragic at the same time.   When asked why people should come Seussical  she said ” Because it’s a great family show.”

Michelle Emmond


Michelle looks forward  every year to helping with  this great fundraiser for the Amherst schools.  Seussical is her 35th PTA Play.   In the past she has been in shows with her children  Christy and Jason and her  husband Jim has been  music director for several productions most recently The Music Man.  Michelle is playing  a Bird  Girl and what sets this character apart from past characters she has played is that  this is like a Las Vegas Style Greek Chorus.      Michelle likes being able to act alongside her students. When asked why people should come see Seussical she said   in addition to supporting this annual fundraiser for the schools she  said that it’s a great show for families to attend.

Cast Member Profile   Karen  Hammes


Seussical is  Karen’s  4th show with the PTA. She has previously been in Joseph  And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat  ( Wife; Ensemble),  Children of Eden  (Snake) and  The Music Man (Mrs. Squires).  Her  favorite past role has been Mrs. Squires because she loved the Grecian Urn scene and the  costumes.    Karen is playing Mrs. Mayor and plays opposite her husband  Steve who is playing Mr. Mayor. Their daughters  Katie and Megan are Bird Girls.  Hammes likes Seussical because of  the  great music and fun characters. She also enjoys the fun time spent together with family and friends.   When asked why people should come see Seussical Hammes replied ” It is a great show with great music and a fun story line that many will recognize as excerpts from several of the Dr. Seuss books. What makes it really good is that the people in the show are having fun – and it shows!”

She was last seen on the PTA stage in 2009 as a Lost Boy in Peter Pan.  She auditioned for a new  experience in theatre.   In Seussical she is playing a fish  and a jungle creature.   She has mostly played people in past shows so it’s  unique that she is playing an animal in this show.  She looks forward to seeing everything come together during  Tech Week.
