SeussicalSpringhouse Theatre Company  (Map)  September 16 – October 1, 2022

“Dr. Seuss’s many stories come to life in overlapping stories, accompanied by catchy songs, powerful themes, beautiful ballads, energetic dances, eye candy sets, and a stellar cast.
The Cat in the Hat helps awaken a young thinker’s imagination, along with the mischievous Thing 1 and Thing 2. Horton hears a “Who!” and sits on an egg. Gertrude McFuzz is ashamed of her one-feather tail. The Grinch, Yertle the Turtle, Solla Sollew, and the Circus McGurkus all make an appearance. A vicious war even erupts based on which side of toast to spread your butter!

SEUSSICAL™ is one of the most performed musicals in American history. It’s endless fun for kids, and it’s more than enjoyable for adults. Come to Springhouse this fall and experience the musical that’s sweeping the nation!”

The Diary of Anne Frank Nashville Children’s Theatre (Map) September 8- October 2, 2022

This transcendently powerful adaption for a current generation brings new life to the story of Anne Frank, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl who lived through the 1942 Nazi occupation of Holland. It tracks the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, capturing the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence while also painting a coming-of-age story about a spirited young woman. Anne Frank’s account, told through her extraordinary diary, is a compelling self-portrait of a young writer whose promising life was tragically cut short and it continues to serve as an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of human history.
