Let your heart grow three sizes as you watch this musical based on the works of rhyme-master and creature-crafter Theodor Geisel. Presented by Kidding Around, Emerson’s resident children’s theater troupe, Seussical the Musical primarily follows the good doctor’s Horton books, but burrows deeper into the themes of his entire ouevre. 

Emerson President M. Lee Pelton even donned the Cat in the Hat’s titular headwear—on video, no less—to promote the show. You couldn’t get a more dependable endorsement from Horton himself.

Children invited, but not required for entry. 

Also runs Sunday, April 6 at noon and 7 p.m.
