For the past 50 years, Theatre Under The Stars has offered Houstonians a free, professionally-produced musical at Miller Outdoor Theatre. This summer, as TUTS prepares to step into its 51st year, the musical theatre company takes its mission to enrich the lives of Houstonians through the experience of musical theatre a step further when it produces the enchanting Broadway musical, Seussical™, through its new Public Works Houston initiative.

Seussical™ was created by Tony Award® winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Once on This Island, Ragtime) create a magical musical for the entire family. Narrated by The Cat in the Hat, who weaves all your favorite Seuss characters into the whimsical tale of Horton the Elephant and his quest to protect the people of Who-ville. Seussical™ brings out the imagination in all of us by reminding us to always believe. Seussical is fantastical fun for the whole family!

Seussical™ runs nightly at 8:15PM from Tuesday, July 16 through Sunday, July 21 at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Bring the whole family to experience this uniquely Houston event. This production is free to the public.
