The Cat in the Hat acts as the mischievous host in Seussical, which calls on many more of Dr. Seuss’ whimsical characters. Together, they create “an incredible crazy-quilt adventure that champions the power of imagination and the benefits of inclusivity,” according to a release from Asheville Community Theatre. Stage veteran but Asheville newcomer Trissa King (as Cat in the Hat), Seuss aficionado Colby Coren (Horton the Elephant) and local middle school student Ethan Seuss (Jojo) all make their ACT mainstage debuts as the musical’s leading trio, though they’ll be joined by a procession of 15 other zany characters. Directed by Mark Jones and with musical direction by Sarah Fowler, Seussical runs on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. through Sunday, March 6. $17-25. ashevilletheatre.org.
