More Info:

On June 23rd and 24th 2012, childhood stories come to life in AMP Theater’s adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, Fox in Socks, Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose, and Horton Hears a Who! Told through circus antics and amazing stunts, this thrilling rendition of classic stories will bring nostalgia to old time lovers and excitement to the new.

Original music written and performed live by The AMP Ensemble will transport the audience to Seuss’ world of fantastical imaginings. Watch in jaw dropping awe as the unicycling Cat in the Hat amuses you beyond measure. Sit on the edge of your seat as Thing One and Thing Two cause mischief in contorting ways. Listen to Fox and Knox’s comedic banter as chicks with bricks do tricks with clocks and blocks. Sue sews Crow’s socks in a tangle high above and Goo-Goose brings something special to the dinner table.

Follow the tweedle beetle battle and champion a winner in the paddle battle muddle. Let Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose tug at your heart strings as he never says ‘no’. Follow the struggles of Horton and the Whos, from the tallest building to the deepest oceans, to keep Whoville safe because a person’s a person, no matter how small.

Please join us on this fantastic wonderful adventure for three showings at the Bossanova Ballroom. Tickets are available at:

    I am new to the Portland Area and would love to finally enjoy a show…. and be able to say afterwards “Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.” – Dr. Seuss-

    Dr. Seuss is my hero. I’d love to watch an ensemble celebrate his zaniness!

  6. Lisa June 21, 2012 at 11:04 am #

    Awesome. We spend all day reading Dr. Seuss to our baby, so it would be a great date night for us. We’d like to attend Saturday night’s show.

  7. jamie stewart June 21, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

    This would be
    fantabulously groovy
    I love Seuss in a book or on a stage
    but seldom in the movies.

  8. marc June 21, 2012 at 2:40 pm #

    Saturday or Sunday
    It would be a fun day

  9. Brandon June 21, 2012 at 2:55 pm #

    I would love to round out my Sunday
    with a date to the circus that eve.
    I will be so busy come Monday,
    working without a reprieve,
    for wooing I’ll have far too little time.
    Please help me, PDX Pipeline!

  11. Dr. Seuss Fan June 21, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    Sounds like fun. I love Dr. Suess and even have a rhyming dictionary! Sunday

  12. Lauren June 21, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I sat there with Sally,
    We sat there, we too.
    And I said, “How I wish we had something to do!”

    Too wet to go out, too cold to play ball…
    But I made sure we DIDN’T do nothing at all.

    I tried to win tickets to a circus display
    So that Sally and I could DO something today!

  13. Jon June 21, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    My Boy LOVES the Seuss!

  14. Jessica Y. June 21, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

    Dr.Suess has been a huge inspiration to my partner and myself as artists since we were children! I’m not going to write a clever rhyme but please please please please please please pleaseeeeeeeee. SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY!

    well who doesn’t like dr. seuss and all things relating?

  18. Christa Wessel June 21, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Oh! Wow! My 8-year-old niece is visiting from Colorado this weekend, and I’ve been desperately searching for child-appropriate (yet still Portland-y) things to do with her! This would be unbelievably perfect. Sunday would be my preference, were I to win. *fingers crossed*

  19. Brian June 21, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    There are way too many lackluster plays made out of children’s lit, but this one sounds like it will be every bit as inventive and fun as the books are. No doubt my two kids will go crazy for it, but mom and dad could use a little Seuss too.

  20. Cory Shird June 21, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    Beer is good

  21. Sara Kelly June 21, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

    My family would absolutely love to attend on Sunday night!! My son’s birthday is this summer and what better way to celebrate but watch his favorite stories come to life. This could inspire him to go and do amazing things in theater!!

  22. Pigshoes June 21, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    The tribe would thoroughly enjoy a G-rated acro show
    on Saturday night at 5 pm. Besides being already hooked
    on acro, Dr. Suess sounds like good clean fun!

  23. Brian June 21, 2012 at 7:39 pm #

    Why would I like to attend such a lovely event?

    … because Dr Suess is OG awesome!

    Saturday afternoon (5p) would be a lovely show to see.

  24. margit June 21, 2012 at 10:45 pm #

  29. Liz In PDX June 22, 2012 at 8:36 am #

    The first book I ever read was “Hop on Pop” and I’ve been a lifelong Dr. Seuss fan ever since. If you haven’t had the chance to, visit the art museum in San Diego where several of his very large original pieces of art are displayed – they’re AMAZING!

    I’d love to go either Saturday or Sunday. I’m as flexible as several of Dr. Seuss’ characters. :)

  30. Anna June 22, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    I know some of these amazing performers and I love Dr. Seuss and I’ve always wanted to see a show like this!
    I don’t go online during the weekend so please call if I win. 5032282233

  31. Bret June 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    One of my first memories ever is my mom reading Dr. Seuss to me, and she’s in town visiting this weekend! How awesome would it be to bring her to this??

  32. Nicole June 22, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    Best combination ever!

  33. BusterH June 22, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

  35. Heather June 23, 2012 at 8:54 pm #

    Can we still win? Sunday please! We can take the nieces and nephews with!

  36. Amanda June 23, 2012 at 9:56 pm #

    I am a teacher who teaches a Dr. Seuss unit every year to my kids. I would love to take one of my students to this during the summer vacation to reinforce the importance of summer reading. What a great event!!!
