Your favorite colorful characters from the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss come endearingly to life in this musical extravaganza.

He also befriends a disillusioned boy named Jojo, who, like him, feels “Alone in the Universe.” With dazzling music and lyrics by Tony-winning team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, you and your entire family will be transported and uplifted!  Rated G.

Premiere Night: Thursday, January 23, 2020

Show Dates: January 23-February 2, 2020

Cliché, but men disguised as women is hilarious-especially in the 1950s. Leo and Jack (down-on-their-luck British actors) are touring Shakespearean scenes when they hear an old woman died, leaving millions to her long-lost British nieces. Having no shame, the actors in stockings, wigs, lipstick, and dresses cast themselves as the heirs in this non-musical farce by Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor)Rated PG-13
