A must-see: “Seussical the Musical” at Savannah Children’s Theatre, Savannah

Who would have guessed the guy who was born to play The Cat in the Hat in “Seussical the Musical” was right here in Savannah? At The Savannah Children’s Theatre, no less!

Tyler Daugherty is a hit as that rascally striped-hat-sporting cat.  We checked out the show this weekend and urge you not to wait until the final weekend to take your kids, as it is so fun and entertaining, it’s sure to be sold out.

Tyler is among an amazing, talented 60-member cast that includes all your favorite Seuss characters including such standouts as Vann Doubleday playing the warm, dependable, loyal Horton the Elephant; Lauren Baxter as Gertrude McFuzz; and Ali Wambold as Mayzie.

This musical is truly for all ages. My 3 & 5 year olds loved it and there were even younger children the audience who watched the entire 2-hour show which includes an intermission. (Bring cash. Popcorn & concessions are sold at the non-profit theatre.) 

The Mainstage production features both adult and children performers, along with a live six-member orchestra. Showtimes: Jan. 27-29 and Feb. 3-5. Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. The Savannah Children’s Theatre’s Mainstage productions are the theatre’s biggest shows of the year and are so popular they typically sell out by the final weekend.

Tickets can be purchased at www.savannahchildrenstheatre.org or at the theatre, 2160 E. Victory Drive, Crossroad Shopping Center, next to the Piggly Wiggly. 912-238-9015.
