The mission of Alpine Community Theater (ACT) - Flagstaff is to create an extraordinary experience through quality entertainment and theatrical productions for children, teens, adults, families and our Flagstaff communities.
Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school 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 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.
Seussical is fun for the whole family!

Through theater, we provide education and entertainment opportunities in the performing arts that create and promote self-confidence, inspiration for individual expression and ensemble teamwork. We focus on positive role modeling and promote involvement in our surrounding communities. - Disney's Little Mermaid Spring 2018 - Pictures by Sean Openshaw, Openshaw Photography.
