“Cure the Winter Blues for there IS a Doctor in the House!””

Seussical is a colorful celebration of the powers of imagination and the rewards of daring to dream. Everyone’s favorite hat-wearing cat is our mischievous master of ceremonies, helping weave together the adventures of two original thinkers; Horton the gentle elephant and Jojo, youngest inhabitant of Whoville. The strength of Seuss’s message, the fun of his wordplay, and the delightful collision of musical styles—make for a rollicking romp with a subtext of substance.
