Hickory – Seussical, the perfect musical for families and theatre goers of all ages, comes to The Green Room Community Theatre February 9-25, 2018. Seussical will be presented in the McCreary Theatre at the The Old Post Office Playhouse in historic downtown Newton.

The incredible Cat in the Hat (Nick Nowell) narrates a magical story featuring the very best of Dr. Seuss characters and stories. There is Horton the Elephant (John David Welch), Jojo (Gabriel Beech), Mayzie (Elizabeth Edwards), and Gertrude (Cheyenne Veach). This show has great characters that jump off the page and come to life on the stage. It presents a kind, humorous, and sincere message, and is filled with wonderful music and fabulous choreography. And of course it’s Dr. Seuss, so there’s plenty of rhyme!

Seussical is directed by Allison Andrews with musical direction by Cathy Banner and choreography by Melissa Statema. It is produced by Catawba Valley Medical Center & Corning Optical Communications. Based on the works of Dr. Seuss, the music & lyrics are by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. It made its Broadway debut in 2000 and has since had two National Tours. Performances are February 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 2018. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm / Sundays at 3:00pm.
