Saturday, November 16, 7 pm • Rancho Mirage Amphitheater
“Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.”
Local youth will participate in presenting a fully staged Broadway musical production of Seussical JR. with fully orchestrated tracks, scenery, props, and costumes to be performed at the Rancho Mirage Amphitheater on Saturday, November 16 at 7 pm. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
Youth ages 7–17 can audition for the opportunity to take part in our full production play! Auditions will take place September 24 and 25 at the Library and require advance online registration.
