WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
On Sneetch Beach, there's a line in the sand—Star Bellies on one side, Plain Bellies on the other. That's the way it is, was, and will be. At least until the sneaky and greedy Sylvester Monkey McBean comes to town with his Star On machine. Suddenly, the difference between the haves and the have nots—those with stars and those without—isn't so clear. What will the Sneetches do now? In this rousing and inventive musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss' powerful parable about the surface things that divide us, it will take a courageous friendship between an unlikely pair of Sneetches to find the answers.
