Staged in celebration of the story’s 50th anniversary of publication, David Greig and Charlie Fink’s Olivier Award-nominated adaptation, directed by Max Webster, is inventively transformed into a semi-staged pint-size version to keep young (and older) minds entertained, enchanted and empowered with its central message of protecting the planet. and with Earth Day landing on April 22nd this is a perfect for you and your family to enjoy.
The cast includes Jamael Westman as The Once-ler, who originated the title role in Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre. He’s joined by Audrey Brisson, Ben Thompson and Silas Wyatt-Burke as puppeteers and Richard Katz, Melanie La Barrie, David Ricardo-Pearce as ensemble.
Written 50 years ago, The Lorax’s magical battle to save his beloved truffula trees and the whole of Paradise Valley from the go-getting Once-ler resonates today louder than ever.
