SPRING WORKSHOP PRODUCTION: Grades 3-8

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, 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!

Did you know Random Farms is a non-profit and tuition only 
covers 60% of the cost of putting a child through the program?  

Our subsidized tuition prices make participating affordable to a more diverse community. 
 
Please consider paying the actual cost, and everything over the subsidized tuition amount will be a tax-deductible donation! This will help support our outreach efforts, which include providing scholarships, discounted tickets, and free performances to those in need.
 
*Each registrant is also responsible for a $10 processing fee at the time of registration.
 
SCHOLARSHIPS
A limited number of financial aid packages are available. Please visit www.randomfarms.com/scholarship for info and application. While Random Farms will provide the majority of each performer's costume, participants are responsible for providing his/her own shoes/tights and undergarments as per the costume memo (to be provided once rehearsals start).

WAIT LIST / PRIORITY REGISTRATION
There is no cost to join a wait list. If a spot becomes available, we will email you and you can decide at that time if you would like to take it. If we are not able to find a spot for your child in any group, your child will receive priority registration for the next Workshop production. That means that you will be given the opportunity to register the day before the program opens to the public. In most cases, this means you will get a spot in your first choice group. To find out where your child is on a wait list (you can join as many as you want, even if you are already in a group), email our Registration Team at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . It is difficult for us to know if/when that will happen, but typically children drop right before the program starts.

NOTE TO PARENTS
The RFKT workshop schedule is designed to be manageable for families and children. The commitment is just once a week, with only one extra rehearsal right before the show. Each performer can take up to one full absence, plus up to two "shadows," which allows performers to come during another section, if they have a conflict during their own time. The mandatory rehearsals leading up to the show are extremely important and ensure that every cast member is comfortable and prepared when it is time to do the show.

PLEASE READ OUR STANDARD AGREEMENT BEFORE REGISTERING

Participants who do not comply with this participation policy may be removed from the program and their account put On Hold, as described in RFKT's Standard Agreement, until parents, participant and RFKT can reach agreement moving forward. Please note that there are no refunds/credits.

*A shadow is like a make-up. If your child misses a session, s/he can make-up the same session with another group. For example, if you are in group B and miss session 3, you can shadow session 3 with group C.
