RCSA presents…Seussical Kids On Stage!

RCSA presents…On Stage!


Tuition: $500
Ages: 7-11 (grades 2 – 5)
Enrollment Opens: Monday, March 7th (see “How to Enroll” section)
Enrollment Deadline: Friday, June 3rd
Dates: June 20th – July 9th (no rehearsal on the 4th of July)
Times: Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 12:00pm
Performances: July 8th @ 7 pm, July 9th @ 3 pm, July 9th @ 7 pm

Students will spend three weeks honing their musical theatre skills and learning all about the “behind the scenes” of what goes into a mainstage Raue Center show–while working right alongside our crew of Chicagoland theatre professionals. Students will get to build on all the great performance fundamentals we teach in the classroom, then put those skills into practice for an audience as part of the cast for our very own full-scale production of SEUSSICAL! KIDS EDITION, performing for one weekend on Raue Center’s stage!

Placement Auditions for solo singing/speaking roles: June 6th (5pm and 6pm)
There will also be information meetings at 5pm and 6pm – more information to come by May 27th. Roles will be announced via email June 9th.

All enrolled students will be part of the show! We will hold a placement audition on June 6th to determine individual role assignments for those interested in solo speaking/singing lines–but if your student only wants a role without solos or lines, just let us know by emailing us at education@rauecenter.org. Everyone will have a special part to play in this interactive theatrical experience!

If unable to attend this date, please email rcsaeducation@rauecenter.org for an alternate audition.

**Financial aid available


Due to the popularity of RCSA Presents programs and the limited number of spots, we offer multiple ways to sign up–these will go fast!

  • March 7 – In-Person Enrollment at Raue Center!
      • The line will open at 5:30 PM at Raue Center.   
      • Enrollment will begin at 6 PM for RaueNOW Family members, and at 6:30 PM for the general public.  Enrollment will be open until 8 PM, in person only–no phone calls or email inquiries will be accepted during this time.  
        • You may only enroll students in your household (or that are related to you)–no enrolling friends, neighbors, etc.  If you have question on this, please contact us!
  • Not a RaueNOW Family member?  We will be available for in-person signups and upgrades starting at 5:30 PM.  Please note, only RaueNOW Family members are eligible to participate in early-enrollment and discounts–so if you are a Basic level member, this is a great opportunity to UPGRADE and SAVE BIG!
  • March 7, 8 PM – Enrollment opens ONLINE for RaueNOW Family Members
  • March 8, 10 AM – Enrollment opens ONLINE and at the box office for the general public


PLEASE NOTE: Once we reach 55 enrolled students per show, enrollment will close.  This may happen before online enrollment is scheduled to open–please check our website and our RCSA Facebook for the most up-to-date information on availability.  


In the event of a sellout, we will accept students for waitlist spots–to be added to that list, email us at rcsaeducation@rauecenter.org.  Please include your name, your student’s name and age, and the best email address to reach you.  If a spot becomes available we will reach out to via email–you will have 24 hours to respond before we move on to the next person on the list.



Please note, if your student enrolls in either show, the household will receive one complimentary ticket for the performance of your choice (some restrictions may apply). These tickets are not retroactive and will be available for redemption when tickets go on sale (date TBD), via an offer code that will be emailed to you for online use.  Offer codes are good for only your family and are per family, NOT per student.


**Financial aid available–contact us at rcsaeducation@rauecenter.org for more information!
