for 29 Palms Rotary



The Twentynine Palms Rotary Club is hosting the opening night of

"Seussical", the Musical, at Theatre 29 Friday, June 29th. The

Broadway Blockbuster is under the Artistic Direction of Gary

Daigneault, Musical Director is Bill Barrett with Choreography by

Mandi Pushkar.

For this special opening night event, doors open at 6:00 p.m. with

complimentary Dr. Seuss themed hors d'oeuvres and punch. The snacks

will be served until the curtain opens at 7:00 p.m.

In addition, at intermission, delicious desserts will be served.

provided by the Twentynine Palms Rotary Club, part of Rotary

International, the largest and most prestigious service club in the world.

The very family-friendly "Seussical" will debut a major addition to

the Theatre 29 experience, a "new technology" digital projector

system which will allow the creative team at Theatre 29 to project

backdrops, special effects, and moving scenes across the entire back

wall seamlessly and silently.

Tickets are $25 per person, for the opening night gala only, and can

be purchased through members of the Twentynine Palms Rotary or by

calling the Twentynine Palms Recreation Department at 760-367-7562.

Tickets are also available at the Z107.7 FM studios In Joshua Tree

and The Loan Lady in Yucca Valley. Tickets for the special opening

Night gala are also available by calling the Theatre 29 Box Office at


"SUESSICAL" is described as a "a fantastical, musical extravaganza!"

All of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters from 15 of his books are

brought to life: Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude

McFuzz, Mayzie, and a imaginative little boy--Jojo. The colorful

characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus

McGurkus to the world of the Whos. Follow Horton, who finds himself

protecting his tiny friend Jojo (and all the Whos) from a world of

naysayers & dangers, but also an abandoned egg, left by the

irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Horton faces ridicule, danger,

kidnapping and a trial, but the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses

faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family

and community are challenged and emerge triumphant; in a story that

makes you laugh and cry.

"SUESSICAL" will run Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 From June 29

until July 28 with a Thursday show at 7:00 pm July 12, and a Sunday

matinee at 2:30 pm July 22..

box office at 760-361-4151. Ticket prices are $12 for adults; $10
