Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your
favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a
fantastical musical extravaganza from TONY winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen
Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island and Ragtime).
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat
in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a
speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who
child who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton’s challenge is
twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and
dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by
the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger,
kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.
Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are
challenged and emerge triumphant!

motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Don’t miss this Andrew Lloyd
Webber and Tim Rice long-running Broadway performance that is sure to illuminate
the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust
imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment.
He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long
struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector
Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the
Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean
spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the
heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the
Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a
magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the
adventure of a lifetime the travelers come face to face with a ticking
crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates, and of course the
villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta
Crow," "I Won't Grow Up," and "Never Never Land," and a rousing book full of
magic, warmth, and adventure, Peter Pan is the perfect show for the child in all
of us who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.
