SCR's Summer Players

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 a year in the Theatre Conservatory) for this Broadway hit about the power of friendship and loyalty—one of the most popular musicals ever!
