'Seussical' to be staged at SVS

Shepaug Dramatics will present its full-scale production of “Seussical, the Musical” April 8-9 at 7 p.m. at Shepaug Valley School on South Street in Washington.

Set in the fictional “Jungle of Nool” and “Whoville,” the family-friendly show features 30 songs, dozens of dance routines, colorful costumed characters, and a live orchestra comprised of professional musicians and Shepaug students.

“Seussical” brings to life characters from numerous books authored by Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known as Dr. Seuss.

While the primary story line originates from Seuss’ “Horton Hears a Who,” additional personalities such as the Grinch, the Cat in the Hat, and Gertrude McFuzz sing and dance their way into the show.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or by calling 860-717-2444.
