Seussical is the magical musical created from the stories by Dr. Seuss (Theodore Seuss Geisel). The musical, written by Lynn Ahrens and Steve Flaherty who also wrote Once on this Island and Ragtime, primarily follows Horton and his adventures with the Whos, the Egg, and Gertrude McFuzz, with The Cat in the Hat as a sort of master of ceremonies. We get to see the stories come to life through the imagination of Jojo, a young boy. Audiences are reminded, “Anything is possible,” and “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” When we feel “Alone in the universe,” we should never forget there is someone watching over us; we are not alone.
The show is filled with crazy adventures, from the jungle to the circus to Whoville and beyond. The journey is told with kindness and leaves us with a sense of belonging. Plus, the music is absolutely beautiful and the story fantastical and super entertaining! Audiences will find themselves wanting to sing the music long after the performance is over.
Suitable for the entire family, we encourage you to bring children, parents, grandparents, neighbors, and all who enjoy a powerful, positive story with wonderful music and a super imaginative, fun journey.
