“Seussical the Musical”: Horizon Performing Arts.
Mar. 16–19. Connor Thomas Rhoades directs local actors in the 2000 Lynn Ahrens–Stephen Flaherty musical comedy based on the children’s books of Dr. Seuss, with a plot that draws mainly from Horton Hears a Who!, Gertrude McFuzz, and Horton Hatches the Egg. The original production was panned by critics, but the show has had a second life as a popular production in regional and school theaters. 7 p.m. (Thurs.–Sat.), & 1 p.m. (Sun.), Riverside Arts Center, 76 N. Huron, Ypsilanti. Tickets $18 ($16 seniors & students) in advance at horizon.booktix.com, and at the door.
