Getting to know Dr. Seuss’s Horton the Elephant




Some say Horton’s a fool – slow and naive as can be.
His compassion is for small things that others cannot see.

But you won’t meet an elephant with thinks so absurd;
who’s still faithful and loyal and true to his word!

For an egg in a tree and a speck on a clover,
Horton’s friendship will triumph over and over.

SEUSSICAL™ is a musical place to see
friendship in action the way it should be.



See Horton and his amazing friends come to Dallas Children’s Theater.

Single tickets go on sale Monday, August 1.
