The mischievous Cat in the Hat joins everyone's favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including the grouchy Grinch, Gertrude McFuzz and lazy Mayzie to bring the author's beloved tales to life on stage. Adapted from the Broadway version especially for young audiences, Seussical Jr.'s stories are linked together by Horton the Elephant, who's out to prove that "a person's a person, no matter how small," and JoJo, a young boy who's a "thinker of strange and wonderful thinks." The colorful cast adventures through the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus and the invisible world of the Whos of Whoville. The whimsical stories are backed by myriad musical styles, from Latin to pop, swing to gospel and R&B to funk. Dr. Seuss' sense of fun and wonder comes through loud and clear, making this a musical that appeals to all ages. Learn More

The Process Theatre Company presents the Atlanta premiere of Topher Payne’s Lakebottom Proper, directed by DeWayne Morgan
Tad and Rowena Tuttle reside on the “good side” of Columbus, Georgia’s ritzy “Lakebottom” neighborhood, and are desperate to get their daughter, Portia, accepted by the prestigious Brookstone School. But minutes before the head of the Parents’ Association is scheduled to arrive for drinks, Rowena’s hillbilly mother arrives from Colquitt, a mutant farm animal escapes in the park, and the ransom note is found: Portia’s been kidnapped.
