Description

An all-time favourite at YPT, this fantastical musical exemplifies the philosophy that “a person’s a person no matter how small”. A Seuss-a-deussical treat for the Holidays!

“Seussical celebrates difference. The action moves briskly… the singing throughout is terrific…”  
– Toronto Star

“NNNN ….entertaining and fun for the entire family” – NOW Magazine

“… a luminous, high-energy romp… fun show for kids and adults alike.” – MooneyOnTheatre.com

Seussical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
