Take the kids this weekend: ‘Seussical’ and ‘Figg’

The Cat in the Hat (Jamie Smithson) is taught a thing or two by JoJo (Svea Johnson) in the Imagination Stage’s “Seussical.” (Blake Echols)
A person’s a person, no matter how small, and Dr. Seuss is the one who tells that to all. The family-friendly musical “Seussical” is based on the works of Dr. Seuss. Here you’ll find Horton the Elephant, the Whos, Gertrude McFuzz and other enchanting characters. Best for children ages 4 to 12.

The play will show Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 and 4 p.m. through Jan. 6 at Imagination Stage, 4908 Auburn Ave., Bethesda. Tickets are $10-$25. For information call 301-961-6060 or visit the theater’s Web site.

For older theatergoers, consider “The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg” at the Kennedy Center. In this new play, an orphan journeys into Civil War battles to save his brother. Best for children ages 8 and up.

Tickets are $18 for the show, in the Family Theater at 1:30 and 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is at 2700 F St. NW in the District. For information call 202-467-4600 or visit the center’s Web site.
