The Play

Bring your whole family to Navy Pier this summer to see the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss come to life on stage. This year marks the 110th birthday of the beloved author, whose work has won Academy Awards, a Peabody Award, a Pulitzer and has been translated into more than 20 languages to be enjoyed by children worldwide. The 75-minute musical Seussical seamlessly intertwines the characters, stories and themes from cherished classics, including Horton Hears a Who!, The One Feather Tail of Miss Gertrude McFuzz and Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! Following each performance, audience members are invited to meet the cast in the theater lobby for autographs and photos.

A CST Family production best enjoyed by ages 5 and up
