The scoop: Dr. Seuss fans and Smarties everywhere, “Seussical” tickets are on sale now for the upcoming show at Matthews Playhouse Feb. 24- March 5.
What: “Oh, the thinks you can think” when Seussical, a musical comedy featuring Dr. Seuss’ most beloved characters, springs to life at Matthews Playhouse Feb. 24 – March 5! Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and many other iconic characters will ignite the imagination in this family-friendly production featuring a lively musical score by the Tony award-winning duo, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. The production will be directed by Matthews Playhouse Executive Director, Sarah Baumgardner.
Described as a “fantastical musical extravaganza”, Seussical reminds us of the importance of friendship, loyalty, and community in a unique style that only Dr. Suess can achieve. The one-and-only Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child that gets into trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Not only must Horton protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.
Who: “Seussical” is recommended for children ages 4 and up.
When: Showtimes and tickets are available at www.matthewsplayhouse.com/seussical.
How much: Tickets range in price from $10-$19.
