The Lorax

This is Dr. Suess' wonderful ecological odyssey. You become part of the show as we realize that our greed can comsume our future. Only Dr. Suess' creative imagination can create a zany story with such a powerful message. Tandem storytelling, puppetry, madcap costumes and oversized props will whisk you away to the land of the Lorax.
