Theatre Harrisburg Presents


April 26 - May 12, 2024

Theatre Harrisburg is proud to present the Tony-nominated musical, SEUSSICAL,
April 26-May 12, 2024, at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg. Theatre Harrisburg is the oldest performing
arts organization in the Capital Region and one of the oldest active community theatres in the United
States. This production is the 4th offering in the historic theatre’s 98th season.

SEUSSICAL is fun for the whole family! The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who
discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school
for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos
from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, 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.

Now one of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL is a fantastical, magical, musical
extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on
This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including
Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big
imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus
to the invisible world of the Whos.

The creative team for SEUSSICAL is led by:

Director, Designer, and Choreographer- Matt Spencer

Music Director- Ryan Dean Schoening

Pit Conductor- Mitchell Sensenig-Wilshire

Theatre Harrisburg’s production of SEUSSICAL is sponsored by ENDERS Insurance.
