Now Playing: SEUSSICAL at the Loveland Performing Arts Center

Heritage students are excited to present Seussical, May 4 & 5 at 7:00 pm at the Loveland Performing Arts Center located on Heritage’s campus.

This new musical story, based on the works of Dr. Seuss, weaves together his most famous tales and characters in fun and unexpected ways! From Broadway to your own neck of the woods, audiences and cast members have been able to dive into the world of Dr. Seuss nationwide since 2000. This imaginative story helps us all believe in the power of our own imagination, shows us the value of helping a friend, and helps us remember to be ourselves.

Performing for a sold-out crowd in our state-of-the-art, 620 seat Loveland Performing Arts Center is one of many life-changing opportunities students experience at Heritage. Three months of diligent practice, getting out of their comfort zones, memorizing lines, singing and dancing finally pays off when a sold-out crowd, including members of the local community, their family members and Heritage staff, provide a standing ovation!

It’s up to Gilbert, a kindhearted chiropodist, and his determined wife Joyce to set things right…by stealing Betty. A hilarious musical straight from London’s West end!
