Some Suessites assembled in Owls Head Park

for magic and songs on Aug. 9 — what a lark!

A fantabulous conjuror put on a show

of mystic illusion that set kids a-glow.

And warblers from Narrows Community Theater

sang Dr. Seuss songs in a whimsical meter.

The show left kids’ faces with smiles that spread

from one ear to the other, one mother has said.

“I’ve never seen my son that excited,”

mom Madga Correa glibly recited.

For actors, the show was a publicity coup

for “Seussical The Musical” — which opens Aug. 22.

“We’re gonna try to do much more publicity for each show as we’re growing,”

said Narrows Community Theater president Marla Gotay, who was glowing.

They sang at the precinct’s Night Out Against Crime

and then during Summer Stroll busted their rhymes.

When the show opens hot, it’s those gambits they’ll owe

for getting park-goers like Correa to go.

“I told my husband afterward, ‘we have to go to the show at the base,’ ”

said Correa, who wanted much more after getting this taste.

Narrows Community Theater presents “Seussical The Musical” at the Ft. Hamilton Army Base Theater [entrance at 101st Street and Ft. Hamilton Parkway, (718) 482–3173,]. Opens Aug. 22 at 8 pm. $10–$20.
