A musical perfect for the whole family, Seussical Jr. takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo.

Seussical Jr. teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
