Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

It was more than I expected! I took my 3-year old daughter nervously, as the show is 2 hours long, beginning at 7:30p, and thus running into her bed time, but the entire time she was enthralled! The singing is excellent, the state and performers were excellent- after a while, you saw Horton and really saw the elephant, and Gertrude was really a bird! The kids in the play are impressive and inspiring for other young children. The production was top quality, with the exception of low mics at times. I would recommend it to anyone. Be assured your money will be well spent- you will have a fantastic time and you will be supporting a great organization!

Seussical unites many of the beloved Doctor’s best-known characters (and some entirely new ones) in a colorful celebration of the powers of imagination and the rewards of daring to dream. Everyone’s favorite hat-wearing cat is our mischievous master of ceremonies, helping weave together the adventures of two original thinkers upon whose misunderstood and resented creativity much depends. Horton the gentle elephant and Jojo, youngest inhabitant of the tiniest planet in the universe — Who — must endure unpopularity and ridicule, yet their ultimate triumphs hinge on staying true to what they believe. The strength of Seuss’s message, the fun of his wordplay, and the delightful collision of a myriad of musical styles — from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R & B to funk — make for a rollicking romp with a subtext of substance.
