"Seussical, The Musical" opens November 15

A co-production of Ukiah Players Theatre and Mendocino College

UKIAH, CA – "Seussical, The Musical" opens November 15 at the Ukiah Playhouse, and plays through December 8, 2007. "Seussical" is a co-production of Ukiah Players Theatre and Mendocino College.

"Seussical" is based on the works of the beloved children's author Theodore Geisel, known to the world as Dr. Seuss. One would think it impossible to condense the major characters and stories of Seuss into a cohesive evening, but Seussical does it, combining bits and pieces of at least 14 Seuss classics (including The Cat In The Hat, of course). The main story involves Horton the Elephant's efforts to save his friend Jojo and the other inhabitants on Who. In the end, Seussical is really about believing in yourself, keeping promises and the rewards of being an independent "thinker." The eclectic, upbeat score will keep feet tapping throughout the show.

This production is directed by Rick Allan, with musical direction by Les Pfutzenreuter and choreography by Maria Monti. The music was composed by Stephen Flaherty, with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. The script/book was written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and the musical was conceived by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle.

Tickets are available at Mendocino Book Company on School Street in Ukiah, and through the Ukiah Players Theatre box office at (707) 462-9226. Group rates and season tickets are available.
