SEUSSICAL the Musical comes to the UNM’s Rodey Theater for nine performances August 10 - 26.Your favorite Seuss characters spring from page to stage in this delightful musical for the whole family which interweaves Theodor Geisel’s most famous tales and characters in unexpected and wonderful ways. The talented local cast includes adults and children, Join the Cat in the Hat, Horton, Mayzie La Bird and the Whos, to name a few, as they travel from the Jungle of Nool to McElligot’s Pool, Whoville and Solla Sollew.
