First, he will present a fast-paced romp through Dr. Seuss at 1:30 p.m. in a performance for all ages. The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, Hop on Pop – the names of these stories brings back fond memories of the first time you stepped into the wonderful and magical world of Dr. Seuss.
