About this show

Emerald City Theatre Company brings the world of Dr. Seuss magically to life with its fresh new staging of Seussical the Musical, a whimsical, wonderful musical for the whole family by Eric Idle, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, based on the collected works of Dr. Seuss. With The Cat in the Hat as a mischievous narrator and a wonderfully eclectic score, Seussical shows family audiences a world where anything is possible through the power of imagination. Remember Horton, the sensitive elephant? So sensitive, in fact, he is the only one who can hear the tiny Whos of Whoville, lost on a speck in a field of clover. While desperately trying to find them, Horton stumbles upon the vixenish Mayzie La Bird sitting on her egg. Now Horton's in a pickle: he's agreed to watch over Mayzie's egg while she takes a break, yet he still has to save the Whos of Whoville! Through inspiring lessons of courage, audiences are reminded that a person's a person no matter how small. Performance Schedule: January 20 - February 24: Saturday & Sunday at 10:30am March 1 - 17: Thursday & Friday at 10:15; Saturday at 10:30am and 1:00pm. Exception: No 1:00pm show on Saturday, March 10.
