Charleston, W.Va. – Students in the University of Charleston’s Master of Business Administration and Leadership (MBAL) program are counting on the Kanawha Valley to help them write their own version of “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” as they market their Dr. Seuss-themed play. To pass their class, they will need at least 150 people to attend “UC Seuss Sees: Leadership Lessons through Dr. Seuss” on Wednesday, December 4 at 7 p.m. in Riggleman Hall’s Geary Auditorium. The production is free and open to the public.
The play will have something for children and adults of all ages, but its theme is centered around business and leadership as a beleaguered businessman learns important lessons from “The Sneetches,” “Oh the Places You’ll Go,” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The event is expected to last about one hour.
“Theater is an amazing laboratory for students,” said MBAL Program Coordinator Dr. David Luechauer. “They get to practice lessons learned in class, enhance their communication skills and practice the type of leadership necessary in the modern world of business.”
Along with recruiting an audience of at least 150, students must clearly articulate their vision through the performance, recruit skilled labor and successfully execute on deadline and budget. They, along with special guest the Cat in the Hat, will be promoting “UC Seuss Sees” at the Capitol Market on Saturday, November 30 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
