The Department of Theatre and Film at American River College offers a wide range of classes in all areas of theatre, along with an expanding Film Studies program. We also maintain a busy production schedule in a variety of performance spaces in our recently modernized and expanded facility. In addition to our season of full-scale department productions, we feature touring Children's Theatre productions, student-produced performances featuring scenes, improv and one-act plays, and an on-going partnership with the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival. This schedule provides broad opportunities for theoretical and practical training for our students, and an exciting and varied menu of theatrical fare for our audiences.

A joint summer production with the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival - Theatre Under the Stars

"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss's best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

Now one of the most performed shows in America,
Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! TONY winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island and Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

Auditions are Sunday April 26 from 2-5pm and Monday April 27 from 7-10p. Callbacks are Tues April 28.

Rehearsals begin May 4, 2015. Performances June 19 – July 19.

Auditions are at the Veteran's Memorial Amphitheatre in Old Fair Oaks Village, 7991 California Blvd, Fair Oaks.

Auditions are cold readings from the script. We will teach you a vocal selection and dance selection for audition.
