Wheelock Family Theatre's SEUSSICAL, Sock Skating, and Much More Family Fun!

This holiday mark your calendar for a joyful family visit to the Museum. Experience SEUSSICAL, a whimsical musical with live music celebrating the imaginative stories of Dr. Seuss, Snowmazing! sock skating sponsored by Smugglers’ Notch Resort, and much more hands-on creative fun!

SEUSSICAL unites many of the Doctor’s best-known characters in a colorful celebration of friendship and community. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child constantly in trouble 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 to his care by Mayzie La Bird. Despite Horton's situation the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
