Youth Theatre presents:

Avon Players is pleased to announce the Youth Theatre program for 2014. This season's exciting Youth Theatre musical production will be Seussical,, Jr., which is based on the works of Dr. Seuss and adapted for the stage by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Featuring the Cat in the Hat as narrator, it 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." Follow Horton as he encounters naysayers and dangers while trying to protect the Whos from the world.
