The play features 53 campers, ages 7 to 17, performing the musical at the Mary and Al Danos Theater.
“Seussical” debuted on Broadway in 2000, having been written by Tony-award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty as an adaptation from children’s stories by Dr. Seuss.
The story largely revolves around “Horton Hears a Who,” which is a book about an elephant tasked with protecting the tiny planet on a speck of dust containing the Whos and Whoville. The journey through the Dr. Seuss-verse features many favorite characters, including the Grinch, Cat in the Hat and the Circus McGurkus.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 13-15; and 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16. General admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased from the Office of Continuing Education in 113 Shaver Gym or at the door.
On Saturday, June 15, the cast will also host a brunch in which they perform skits from the musical at 11 a.m. Tickets are $25 for the brunch.
