Uptown Music Theater Announces Cast For September Show SEUSSICAL
Seussical is a fantastic, magical and musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Once on This Island, Ragtime) lovingly brought all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters to life, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz the Sloth Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Christmas Jungle to the McGurkus Circus in the invisible world of the Whos.
Performances will be at the Northwood Theater, 945 North Avenue, Highland Park, IL on September 2, 3, 9, 10 at 7:30 p.m. and September 3, 4, 10, 11 at 2 p.m.
