Dr. Seuss is coming to the Casper Children's Theatre. Their production of "Seussical, Jr." opens August 24th, complete with a cast of favorite characters brought to life by young people.

Executive Director of Casper Children's Theatre, Jordan Nelson, says the musical follows the main two Dr. Suess Books of the character of Horton. "So you have the beginning where Horton hears the 'Whos', and also kind of mixes in the story of when he sits on the egg, and marries those two stories," she says, "and then of course it has the Cat In The Hat as a character who brings you all the way through the musical."

The cast features 45 young people ranging in age from four to fifteen.

The show opens Thursday, August 24th, with 7:00 p.m. evening shows through the 26th. There will also be 2:00 p.m. matinees on the 26th and 27th. The tickets are $8.00, and are general admission.  Performances will take place at the Baker Meeting Building at True Oil Company, at 465 North Poplar.

You can purchase tickets at the door, but due to limitations on seating Nelson recommends buying them in advance by visiting their website at www.thecasperchildrenstheatre.com.
