Shows are at 7 p.m. each day and at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $20 for students, senior citizens and military. They may be purchased online at https://northstar.booktix.net/

The production features local actors under the direction of Kelly Dacus-Smith. There are two different casts.

An 11-piece orchestra will be conducted by Scott Tomlin.

“We are thrilled to bring the enchanting world of Dr. Seuss to life on our stage,” said Nathan Simmons, NSTC’s executive director.

“ ‘Seussical’ is a show that truly captures the imagination and reminds us of the importance of embracing our differences, standing up for what we believe in, and never underestimating the power of a small act of kindness.”
