Welcome to Seussical The Musical!
Seussical is based on the children’s books by Dr Seuss. It is a sung through musical that weaves together some of the most famous tales and characters in quite unexpected ways. Many of the characters never met in the original books, but they meet in this musical! In the course of the show some will fall in love, have desperate adventures and some will save the world!
In Dr Seuss books we see belief in the value of helping a friend, in not giving up and in keeping a promise. There is belief in the value and dignity of others and in working to preserve the fragile sweetness of the natural world. Peace is seen as the ultimate ideal among nations and in every heart and one of the strongest forces in the world is the pure power of imagination.
And all of this is encapsulated in a quirky, funny musical that all the family can enjoy.
