We can’t wait to kick off our first main stage production of the 13th season with Seussical the Musical. The cast is set, but we are still looking for ensemble members to help fill out the Jungle of Nool and the city of Whoville. If interested, please contact Director, Carrie Vargas, via maricopacommunitytheatre@gmail.com.

Rehearsals will be Monday – Thursday from 7 pm – 9 pm. Performances will be October 12th – 14th at 7 pm, and October 15th at 2 pm and 7 pm. 

Be excited to track through the truffula trees and remember, a person’s a person, no matter how small.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
