Seussical, Jr.

Set in 1918, The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree is a musical adaptation from Gloria Houston’s popular book of the same title. 

The story follows 7-year-old Ruthie Green, who is anticipating the Christmas Holiday with tremendous fervor. Her father is due to return from fighting World War I and their family has the honor of providing the community Christmas Tree for the intimate Appalachian community they live in. When her father is delayed, Ruthie’s vision of the perfect Christmas and the Perfect Christmas Tree is threatened. In a deeply felt and moving conclusion, Ruthie and her family experience a Christmas miracle that will bring the spirit of the season to life for all.
