"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss's best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!

ETA presents the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss in Seussical The Musical.

Seussical is far from being only a show for children; it is a fantastical, colourful, high-energy, a larger-than-life musical extravaganza brimming with fun and excitement for ‘thinkers’ of all ages. Set to an incredible and varied score featuring a range of genres from funk, to big band, to rock and roll, to musical theatre. Co-conceived by Monty Python’s Eric Idle, this raucous and ultimately touching story by Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty is a feel-good musical bonanza which dares us to think big and reminds us of the power of loyalty, family, and acceptance. After all, a person’s a person no matter how small!

So come and join Encore Theatre Academy and the mischievous Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and a host of other much-loved characters on a magical, madcap adventure from the Jungle of Nool, to the Circus McGurkus, to the tiniest planet in the sky, Whoville.

A musical that is fun for all the family.

AYDMS Seniors - The Full Monty

  • 3rd - 7th September 2019
  • 19:00
  • £12.00 Full / £10.00 Group 8+

Based on the cult hit film of the same name, The Full Monty, a ten-time Tony Award nominee, is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. 

While spying on their wives at a "Girls' Night Out," a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to "let it go."

The Full Monty is a story full of heart. Right to the end, audiences will be wondering if these lovable misfits will really pull it off. With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizzazz.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult

Start Times: Tuesday 3rd – Thursday 5th September – 7pm

                    Saturday 7th September – 2:30pm
