 FORSPONSORED BY: Vernal’s TaVaci School of Performing Arts

MUSICAL – Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos while also guarding an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care, facing ridicule, danger and even a trial. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

There are TWO CASTS for this production. 
RED CAST performs Wed PM, Fri PM and Sat AFT.
BLUE CAST performs Thu PM, Fri AFT and Sat PM.

If you have a specific cast member you would like to see, please make sure you purchase tickets for the correct performance.
