“Bringing these characters to life has been such a blast for the entire ensemble. Every cast member is very enthusiastic about this production and is working hard to make it the best West musical we have done,” stated Tom Venutolo, West choral director and director of the spring musical.

“These are stories everyone has grown up with; now they get to enter the world of Seuss on stage, which coincidentally, is the plot of the whole show—a young boy creates the Cat in the Hat from his ‘thinks’ and is thrust into the many stories of Dr. Seuss,’ adds Venutolo.
