About The Show
Favorite characters from a host of Dr. Seuss books are brought to life by a cast of more than 90.
The crazy, karmic Cat in the Hat catapults the cast into one cataclysmic catastrophe after another and causes captivating little JoJo to stretch his imagination to the breaking point.
Lovable Horton the Elephant lumbers through the jungle, determined to do the right thing, while lovelorn Gertrude McFuzz pursues him with melodies.
Add to the mix the scintillating and seductive Maizie La-Bird and sizzling soul sister, the Sour Kangaroo, who seeks to incite the wily Wickersham Brothers to whisk Whoville away from Horton’s protection and plunge the poor little Who’s into desperate danger.
The plot also features flamboyant and fabulous Bird Girls, frolicking fancy-free throughout the show, enhancing the story with four-part harmony.
Colorful animals animate the Jungle of Nool, curious circus creatures cavort under the big top, undersea creatures glide gracefully through JoJo’s “Thinks,” and General Genghis Khan Schmitz maniacally marches his captive cadets, leading JoJo into more misadventures, much to the delight of the Cat.
Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 60 years of age and over and $5 for children 12 and under. The theatre seating is first-come first-served.
Tickets may be purchased at the box office window one-and-a-half hours prior to performance, payable by cash or check only.
