The 9th Annual Children's Theatre Production presents Seussical. Dr. Seuss' most-beloved stories all spring to life in one magical musical with all of his classic characters: Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, the Whos of Whoville, Gertrude McFuzz, Jojo and more! For the second time in a BTG community production, actors will be flown through The Colonial Theatre. Last year’s community production Peter Pan was a successful production with a cast of 103 local talented young actors, “The memory [of Peter Pan] will linger as a sterling example of the important mission of our area's performing-arts companies…touching the hearts of thousands of Berkshire youngsters through the irreplaceable joy of live theater, music and dance,” said Clarence Fanto of The Berkshire Eagle.

Seussical is an unforgettable tale of friendship, love, family, and community, The Cat in the Hat narrates a whimsical story of Horton the Elephant who must guard a lonely abandoned egg and protect the Whos from all danger! With flying stunts by the actors, unforgettably fun songs and dance, the musical dives into a fantastic and incredible crazy-quilt adventure exploring the wonderful power of imagination, determination and positive thinking!

“I am thrilled to bring this beautiful project to life with over 100 local community members of all ages,” said Travis Daly. “This story shows us how the power of imagination can transport us to magical world's where ‘anything is possible.’ In these world's we meet iconic characters who have the courage and heart to show us how believing in someone's voice can strengthen friendship, family and community. ‘A person's a person no matter how small.’”
