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.

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.
