The Musical

The College’s production of “Seussical: The Musical” will feature student, community and professional performers. The show is organized by Pierre-Jacques Brault, co-founder and artistic director of Mercury Theatre and director of theatre studies at the College. It features Brian Marshall, who is co-founder and managing director of Mercury Theatre and serves as managing director of theatre at Notre Dame, in the lead role of the Cat in the Hat. Notre Dame is the official home of Mercury Theatre.

Based on popular characters from the children’s books of Dr. Seuss, “Seussical,” with music and lyrics by Tony Award-winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, debuted on Broadway in 2000, generated two U.S. tours and has been performed off-Broadway. The G-rated production emphasizes themes of friendship, loyalty, family and community.

The Concerts

The College’s annual spring choral concert showcases Notre Dame vocal program ensembles, including Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, and faculty artists. Notre Dame’s instrumental programs headline the Wind Symphony concert, in which faculty and student musicians perform the final concert of this academic year.

​Additional information about Notre Dame’s performing arts programs, which include academic degrees in music, theatre and arts and theatre entrepreneurship as well as co-curricular groups and scholarships for vocal, instrumental, theatre and dance performance, is available online at www.NotreDameCollege.edu/PerformingArts.

As part of the College’s dedication to arts education, performing arts scholarships are available to students, regardless of their academic interests or athletic involvement. No scholarship audition is required for those interested in a music, theatre or dance ensemble. Placements occur during the first week of class.
