“Seussical” brings to life a number of notable characters, like Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo, in settings ranging from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus and the invisible world of the Whos.
The performance runs through Aug. 10, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Admission is $10 to $15.
