Now one of the most performed Broadway shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Seussical is fun for the whole family!

Similitude, The Great Adventure Begins
Show Dates: March 19-20, 2021
Similitude, The Great Adventure Begins, was a tremendous theatrical and spiritual success. Many lives were challenged and changed as they participated on stage and in the audiences. Many testimonies were shared about these life-altering "God-encounters," too many to list here.
Many of the theater-goers shared experiences of excitement, empathy, awe, surprise, repentance, and hope. From the opening courtroom scene to the homegoing closing, audiences were exposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the characters of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. The music, by artist Neal Morse, along with incredible acting, stunning choreography, and unique costuming added to the authenticity of the message, leading cast and audiences alike into the amazing truths of God.
"I touched heaven," said one audience member. "I will never be the same."
PoiemArtistry is excited about the future productions of Similitude including the upcoming movie version of the show. More details will be forthcoming. Stay tuned!
