BRATTLEBORO- The New England Youth Theater presents a summer musical, “Seussical Jr,” the shortened version of Broadway’s “Seussical the Musical,” from August 8 to 16, Tuesday to Saturday, at 7 pm, and Sunday, August 10, at 2 pm. It is a major mash-up of characters and story lines from 17 books by the beloved children’s author, Dr. Seuss.

His most beloved characters come to life in this high energy, heart-warming musical. It is a story of loyalty, perseverance, and acceptance with a nonstop fantastic musical score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Follow Horton the Elephant on his quest to save the Whos, but it doesn’t stop there. Journey through the Jungle of Nool, visit the Circus McGurkus, and even swim in McElligot’s pool. Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie LaBird, Yertle the Turtle, and many more favorite Seuss characters will leap off the page and onto the NEYT stage for this summer’s musical.

Broadway veteran Alisa Hauser directs and choreographs with Deniz Cordell as musical director. Timeless Dr. Seuss themes abound; a person’s a person no matter how small, independent thinkers are wonderful, being different is great, and anything is possible. Suitable for all ages, this is a show not to be missed.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at, at the NEYT box office in person or by phone at (802)246-6398, from 12 to 5pm only on Wednesdays. The New England Youth Theater is located at 100 Flat Street.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, and $11 for students. For more information email
