Seussical the Musical takes to the Performing Arts Center stage tonight and tomorrow. A group of high school students and recent graduates from across the country have spent the last two weeks putting the show together.

The musical relies on contributions from 18 of Dr. Seuss’s books, from the well-known “Green Eggs and Ham” to the less famous “McElligot’s Pool.”

KCAW’s Ed Ronco attended some rehearsals and sent back this report, in his best Seussian rhyme:

Listen to iFriendly audio.

Performances are 7 p.m. Friday, and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday. Hear an interview earlier from earlier this week with director WT McRae and actor Megan Wright.

Tickets are available at Old Harbor Books or at the door.
