A grumpy hermit hatches a plan to steal Christmas from the Whos of Whoville in this holiday classic. Puppets, songs, and the inimitable rhymes of Dr. Seuss are wrapped up in this delightful gift the whole family can share together. Recommended for kids of all ages.
Michael O’Neill directs a cast of twelve students. The production features custom designed puppets, many operated by students behind the scenes, with live music and sound effects — a genuine theatrical experience sure to delight.
In the spirit of the season, the audience may contribute cash or donate an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots in the lobby of Buck Hall before the performance. In return, cast members will pose with those who helped make the holiday happier for deserving kids this year.
