Seussical is our summer youth production. Directed by Lisa Noyes, the show runs July 29, 30, and August 1, 5 and 6 at the Amphitheater. This fantastical family musical is based on the books of Dr. Seuss, including favorites like “Horton Hears a Who!”, “Horton Hatches the Egg,” and “Miss Gertrude McFuzz.”
Story: Horton hears a noise coming from a speck of dust on a clover and commits himself to protecting it and the Whos who live on it; Jojo, a misfit Who who “doesn’t Think normal Thinks,” struggles to find his place in the tiny Who society; Gertrude McFuzz tries to catch the attention of her love - the kind and compassionate Horton. Through mishaps and adventures, these unique characters finally find what they seek - their places in their world.
Tickets are now on sale here.
