Youth Theatre

Book by: Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
Music by: Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by: Lynn Ahrens
Co-Conceived by: Eric Idle
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss

Show Description:
We have all the characters from Dr. Seuss,
They’re off of the page and out on the loose!
Horton the elephant, Gertrude the bird!
And JoJo the thinker who thinks a new word!
The Wickersham Brothers, the Sour Kangaroo,
And all of the Who’s play a major role too!
And of course we can’t have a big show like that
Without our emcee – the Cat in the Hat!
From Whoville to the Circus to the Jungle of Nool,
Why we’ll even take you to McElligot’s Pool!
Fun for all ages and sizes and kinds
With big imaginations and open-upped minds!
