Lyceum Continues with Musical Inspired by Dr. Seuss

The next event in the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will be a rendition of the Broadway musical “Seussical,” which takes the audience into the world of Dr. Seuss.
Truman’s Theatre Department will perform the popular “Theatre for Young Audiences” version at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 in Ophelia Parrish Severns Theatre. This specially adapted 80-minute show is presented through special arrangements with Music Theatre International.
The musical, by Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, features classic characters such as the Cat in the Hat and Horton the Elephant. It weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love, and teaches the power of being unique and the importance of fighting for one’s beliefs.
