See your favorite Dr. Seuss books come to life on stage as The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie Le Bird and Jojo, (a little child with a big imagination), transport us from the Jungle of Nool, to the Circus McGurkus, to the invisible world of the Whos, to celebrate the power of friendship, loyalty, and community and remind us that
“a person’s a person no matter how small.”
Woodside Musical Theatre is proud to present this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza
by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the Tony Award-winning team that brought us Ragtime and Once on This Island.
Children and adults alike will love the silliness of the story, the familiar Seuss characters, and the outrageous (and earwormy) music. But adult audiences will find that this light-hearted romp slyly addresses adult themes of politics, social norms, and morality.
Although often performed by-and-for children, Seussical began on Broadway with an adult cast, and Woodside Musical Theatre is honoring those Broadway roots with our own elevated production that will knock your socks off!
To quote the Cat In The Hat... "this ain't Mother Goose!"
Seussical Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
