The Inland Regional Youth Theatre is performing Seussical written by Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. This show has lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. The performances are November 6th & 7th at 7:30pm and November 7th & 8th at 2:00pm. The performances will be held at the Levi Theatre at Sherman Indian High School.   

“The Inland Regional Youth Theatre is a youth theatre company with the goal of providing affordable theatre opportunities to the youth of the Inland Empire,” says Brian Sharp, President and Producer of Inland Regional Youth Theatre. “Based out of Riverside, the Inland Regional Youth Theatre seeks to offer a variety of opportunities for youth to participate and learn about the performing arts. These learning opportunities range from performing on stage to working behind the scenes. Our mission is to allow any youth who wishes to explore the arts an opportunity to do so. We always have openings and opportunities available.”  

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, 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.  

“I am thrilled to direct Seussical the Musical for IRYT.  With a 54 member cast this is the largest ever assembled for an IRYT show,” says Kami Martin-Crump, the shows director.   “Our talented young cast ranging from 5 - 21 years of age make this extremely popular piece of theatre come to life.  This is a true story of friendship and dedication.”

Inland Regional Youth Theatre's production of "Seussical" runs November 6 & 7 at 7:30 p.m. and November 7th & 8th at 2:00 p.m. at the Levi Theatre on the Sherman Indian School campus, located at 9010 Magnolia Avenue in Riverside. Presale tickets are $10 and $15 at the door.  For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
