Session 1: Seussical Jr

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger 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!

Please do not register if you have any conflicts. Absences and/or “shadowing” (making up a missed rehearsal) are not permitted during two-week intensives. If your child misses a rehearsal (due to illness or otherwise), continuation in the program will be at the discretion of the Director. Performers who are late to a full run-through or dress rehearsal, for whatever reason, even for illness, are not permitted to perform in the show.

  • Did you know Random Farms is a non-profit and tuition only covers 60% of the cost of putting a child through the program?
  • Our subsidized tuition prices make participating affordable to a more diverse community. We ask families to choose the tuition tier they can afford on good faith; no application for the subsidized tuition is required.
  • Please consider paying the actual cost, and everything over the subsidized tuition amount will be a tax-deductible donation! This will help support our outreach efforts, which include providing scholarships, discounted tickets, and free performances to those in need.

*Each registrant is also responsible for a $10 processing fee at the time of registration.


A limited number of financial aid packages are available. Please visit our scholarships page for information and application.


While Random Farms will provide the majority of each performer’s costume, participants are responsible for providing their own shoes/tights and undergarments. We will send out a detailed costume memo after the program begins.
