Phoenix Kids presents “Seussical: The Musical” this weekend and next at the Phoenix Performing Arts Centre in Duryea.

The shows are 7 p.m. April 14 and 20-21, and 2 p.m. April 15 and 22, at 409 Main St., Duryea. Tickets are $10 and may be reserved by calling 570-457-3589. Tickets are available at the door.

“Seussical” is based on the works of Dr. Seuss and weaves together his most famous tales and characters. The show follows the adventures of Horton, an elephant who one day hears voices coming from a speck of dust. He soon discovers that within this tiny speck exists the smallest planet in the universe. On this tiny planet live a tiny race of creatures known as Whos. Although ridiculed by the other animals in the Jungle of Nool for believing in something he cannot see, Horton stubbornly persists in his belief that the Whos exist. Phoenix’s production is done with puppets as the characters.
