Fauquier Community Theatre

The community theatre concludes a three-weekend run of the musical that features more than 30 characters from at least 15 of Dr. Seuss’ books. The story focuses on Horton the Elephant as he navigates a series of challenges and discoveries. The show — with complex choreography and vibrant costumes — celebrates friendship and community as much as the power of the individual imagination. It also teaches the power of being unique and the importance of fighting for your beliefs. Tickets: $18 for students, $20 for seniors and $22 for adults. www.FCTstage.org or 540-349-8760.
