Enjoy the whimsy of ‘Seussical Jr.’

“Seussical Jr.” transports audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkis. The Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers but 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, 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 in this charming musical now playing at Sutter Street Theatre.

“Seussical Jr.” — co-conceived by Eric Idle, book by Stephen Flaherty, music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens — is directed by Connie Mockenhaupt.

The show runs through Aug. 17 with performances at 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $17 general, $15 seniors, $13 children 12 and younger. There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more. Call the box office for group tickets. Birthday parties are also available.

Sutter Street Theatre is locates at 717 Sutter St. in Folsom. For reservations and more information call (916) 353-1001 or visit SutterStreetTheatre.com
