Last Friday night, I had the privilege of taking my family to the opening night of Seussical at Children’s Theatre uptown. What a magical and musical treat – this is the biggest production of the season and is definitely not to be missed! With every new season at Children’s Theatre, I always remind myself how lucky we are to have such a strong community of the arts like we do here in Charlotte.
Oh, the thinks you can think, when you think about Seuss! Dr. Seuss’ beloved stories collide in a family musical adventure that has delighted audiences across the country since its 2000 Broadway debut. Steadfast Horton the Elephant, insecure but mighty Gertrude McFuzz, and the mischievous Cat in the Hat take center stage in this colorful extravaganza that celebrates the bonds of friendship, the richness of individual differences, the importance of tolerance and the incredible power of the imagination.
My favorite character was Gertrude McFuzz, hands down – she was a HOOT! The production lasts just over 2 hours with intermission. My children ages 10, 8 & 5 were mesmerized for the entire performance, they absolutely LOVED Seussical! Mom & Dad did too!
