Cast Spotlight: Sarah Montgomery and Evan Bach

by Noah King

Fredericksburg, VA-- Sarah Montgomery will be playing the Sour Kangaroo in “Seussical Jr.”, a co-production between Universal Studios and STEPVA, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to empowering people with disabilities and their families through creative expression and sensory exploration.


In the show, the Sour Kangaroo serves as one of the characters who, at first, doubts the existence of the Whos, but ends up deciding to help Horton the Elephant protect them. The character first appeared in “Horton Hears A Who”, which is one of Montgomery’s favorite Dr. Seuss books.

 

“[My favorite Dr. Seuss characters are] the Wickershams,” Montgomery said, referring to the secondary antagonists of the previously mentioned book.


Montgomery is excited about being in the show, and enjoys the song “Biggest Blame Fool,” the third song in the show.

 

Montgomery was last seen as “Lucy van Pelt” in “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.”

 

Evan Bach will be playing “Mr. Kangaroo” in “Seussical Jr.,” and he’s quite excited about the task.


“He is just as sour and mean as the Sour Kangaroo,” Bach said.

Bach’s favorite Dr. Seuss book is “Fox in Socks”, and his favorite character is Horton (who is being portrayed by unofficial STEP VA event MC Noah Finch in the show).

Bach previously appeared as Linus—younger brother to Montgomery's Lucy—in “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown!”

“I learned [from that experience] that we can say the lines right,” Bach said. “This is a little bit different because I have to do a lot of rhyming.”


Bach hopes that if you come see the show, you will learn that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
