The whimsical world of Seuss brought to life

Kathryn DeGroot

When the 66th Music Circus season was announced, I knew I had to make it out to see Seussical. The rhythmic rhyme and curvy lines of the Dr. Seuss we know and love were even better than I imagined in the theatre-in-the-round. My husband, who’s a kid at heart, couldn’t contain his excitement when I told him we were going to see this work of art.

Effortlessly combining many of Dr. Seuss’ greatest stories, Seussical brought to life Horton, the Whos, and Thing One and Thing Two, just to name a few. As always, the stories by Dr. Seuss contain important messages about how to confront a difficult situation, create a good life foundation, and these lessons were woven throughout the production.

The delightfully zany characters were portrayed in a magical way and brought the set to life all through the play. Renowned puppeteer, Richard Bay, added to the Seussian delight with his bright and colorful caricature puppets of fish, birds, and other creatures.

Perfect for kids and the young at heart, Seussical allows you to escape into the witty and wild world of Dr. Seuss. So with that friends, I will leave you some wise words from Dr. Seuss:

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”

Seussical runs through July 17. Purchase tickets and more information, click here.
