Actors Guild back with 'Seussical'

All performances take place at Windham High School, 64 London Bridge Road.

The play revolves around the Cat in the Hat telling his story of Horton, an elephant who embarks on adventures with his friends while protecting others from a world of danger all while protecting an egg he found left in his care, facing ridicule, and a trial.

But many never lose faith in Horton as he continues to spread messages of friendship, loyalty, family and community.

Tickets for "Seussical" are available by emailing wagtickets@gmail.com or calling (603) 247-8634.

The show is presented through arrangements with Music Theatre International.

The Windham Actors Guild is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing accessible and inclusive theatre to performers and audiences all throughout southern New Hampshire. The group provides education and social opportunities for actors of many ages and backgrounds to support a love of theatre both on stage and behind the scenes.
