"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical KIDS, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime).
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the
story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a
Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold – not only must he
protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left
in 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!
Seussical KIDS is great fun for the whole family.!

The Odd Couple (Female Version)
By Neil Simon
April 26 – May 12
Sundays 2 pm
Special Saturday Matinee May 11, 2pm
Directed by Bryan Bergeron
The Odd Couple (Female Version) is Neil Simon’s 1986 update of his original New York-based, male-cast comedy. This time, the lead players — Unger and Madison –are women — named Florence Unger and Olive Madison. They portray the persistently bickering roommates who try to make a go of cohabitation, despite having totally opposite personalities and lifestyles.
Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit.
Their persistent effors to smooth over the potholes of life ramps up the comedy level and makes the show even more worthy of watching!
The Mummy Fractured
Written & Directed By Bryan Bergeron
June 14 - 30
Fridays-Satrudays 8 pm
Sundays 2 pm
Special Matinee June 29 2 pm
This is the 7th Season Finale in our popular Fractured series.
This fractured tale is inspired by the movies we've enjoyed throughout the decades. In 1922, the unveiling of King Tut's Tomb inspired the original "The Mummy" starring Boris Karloff. The hilarious "Abbot & Costello Meets the Mummy came out in 1955 and the Mummy movies just keep coming. Over 45 feature films have been made starring the slow moving corpse.
The Mummy Fractured is a non-stop romp through desert sands where laughter never stops. Curses, wierd rituals, clueless scientist and of course our lethargic monster, are all ingredients of our Surfside brand of"Giggle Juice".
Beware...We may just curse you to die laughing.
Support the theatre and commemorate a loved one at the same time. Adopt a seat and have a personalized nameplate in our auditorium. Great for a gift or to recognized someone special.
To this end, we have established our Adopt-a-Seat Fundraiser.
For a donation of $200, you can purchase a small plaque to be placed on the back of a seat of your choice.
