“Oh, the thinks you can think” when Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in Albuquerque’s very first immersive musical theatre production, presented by Cardboard Playhouse and The Electric Playhouse!

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and 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 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!


Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company, created by Doug Montoya and Kristin Berg in December 2004, prides itself on being one of the only children’s theatre companies in Albuquerque that casts children on their ability to perform, not on their ability to pay. CPTC keeps itself viable by generating revenue through ticket sales and grants. CPTC was formed by a love of both improv and children, and fosters self expression, self confidence, and creativity through the use of an improv-based theatrical program. CPTC asks children to think for themselves and to take a sense of ownership in the show. To date Cardboard Playhouse has produced almost 100 productions casting over a thousand local adult and child actors.
