The Tales of Dr. Seuss Come To Life and the 92nd Season of GRCT

The whimsical tales of Dr. Seuss come to life in Seussical The Musical. Based on Horton Hears a Who!, The Cat in the Hat, and Miss Gertrude McFuzz, this heart-filled journey is guaranteed to thrill all fans of this beloved rhyming master.

The story focuses on some familiar characters; Jojo who is told not to think, Horton who is ridiculed for his dream, and Gertrude McFuzz who is just working to get Horton to notice her. This musical adventure reminds us all of the importance of discovery and a spirit of imagination.

Director Andrew Anglin shared further perspective on the show, “Seussical offers all the energetic and colorful flights of imagination that you'd expect from Dr. Seuss, but it's packaged in a fresh and exciting musical score that artfully carries the entire show. And at the center of all this wonderful spectacle is a touching human story about love.”
