What’s more fun than reading a fantastical Dr. Seuss book? Seeing a magical musical extravaganza—live, onstage with all your favorite Dr. Seuss characters! Cat in the Hat is your host and Horton the Elephant is your guide on a journey from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the World of the Whos, as a little boy with a big imagination proves that a person is a person, no matter how small.

“Oh, the Thinks You Can Think” when you join SCR’s Summer Players (talented young actors who audition for roles in the annual production after at least one full year in the Theatre Conservatory) for this Broadway hit about the power of friendship and loyalty—one of the most popular musicals ever!

Recommended for ages 6 and above.

No one knows you like family. In the Underworld the brute, the favorite, the hero and her boyfriend play cards and ignore the past. When their last surviving sister comes banging on the door, they’re forced to confront the secrets, the battles and the curses that sealed their fate long ago. Join the Teen Players as they bring to life a gripping, powerful​—and surprisingly funny​—continuation of the classic Greek story of Antigone.

All the characters are portrayed by the Teen Players, students (grades 9-12), chosen by audition after at least two years in SCR's Theatre Conservatory, a year-round actor training program.
