When the curtain opens at Auburn High School tonight, the audience will be drawn into another world, the one created by Theodor Geisel in 1937. Geisel used the pen name Dr. Seuss for most of his children’s books, and he created a style that is known to millions of children around the world.

Geisel likely could not have envisioned a musical based on his books, and he certainly would not understand the technology and music that make Seussical such a fun and entertaining show. The orchestra is fantastic, the sets are fantastic, and, most importantly, the performers are fantastic.

Tickets are still available for shows tonight, tomorrow night, and on Sunday. Today’s slide show is just a hint about Seussical and the images were made during Wednesday’s rehearsal.
