This event was outstanding. The talent throughout the cast was amazing. It was one of the best performances I have seen in a small venue.

My husband and I and our 11 year old son LOVED IT. Great fun. The musical score is fabulous, reminiscent of a broadway musical, and the way they weave together many of the Dr. Seuss stories is very clever. Overall cast is strong plus there...continued

Great fun for the whole family. We own the CD, so the kids knew all the songs which made it especially fun for them. The show is 2-hours long, so it's best for older toddlers and up.

Wonderfully colorful set and costumes. Singing, dancing and stunts were fabulous. The show was much better than what we expected.

Great show for kids. Pace was good. There's some real talent on that stage - especially the young woman who played Mazie and the young gentlemen who played the Cat in the Hat.

Show was really well done. Actors and Actress were all talented and shined the entire way through. Songs were funny and full of life. Tons of references for Dr. Suess fans to pick up on. Theater was small but the sound and views were excellent....continued

A great show. The set was very colorful and well done (surprisingly so for a local playhouse). The music was catchy and fun to listen to. The actors were all top-notch, even the kids. I and my date both enjoyed ourselves and would go again.
