Prescott Park’s “Seussical” summer performance schedule!
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza!
Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty 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.

BLANKETS: Prefer to sit up front rather than at a table? Reserve a blanket and we’ll set one of our Prescott Park Arts Festival blankets for you, allowing you to arrive at your convenience and find your spot ready for you. Better still? You get to keep the festival blanket at the end of the night! These blankets are normally sold for $25, making a blanket reservation ($39-$55) one of the best deals around! Blankets are roughly 5′ x 5′, either navy blue or forest green with the Prescott Park Arts Festival logo, and a soft 50/50 cotton/poly blend.
TABLES: Enjoy performances from the Federal Savings Bank VIP Seating Area, and arrive at your convenience to find a reserved table ready and waiting for you. Each table reservation comes with a 4 chairs per table and range from $29-$45 for members and $39-$55 for non-members.
FOOD: Why wait in line? Order your Pies in the Park ahead of time and have them ready and waiting when you arrive! Order directly from any of our event pages and enjoy! Pizza orders are accepted until 2:00 pm the day of an event. Additionally, you’ll find our brand new kitchen, The Prop, in the park that offers lots of tasty meal options like hamburgers, hotdogs, subs, salads, and more!
