Seussical, the musical

Cayla Primous, Morgan Montgomery (photo by Lauren Jurgemeyer)JoJo battles shame throughout the show while trying to conceal their uniqueness in the busy, conformist, and oppressive world around them. With encouragement from The Cat in the Hat, JoJo learns to accept and love themself while showing the adults that when they truly open their minds, they can together create a world where anything’s possible. 

 

Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
