'I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees!’

The irrepressible, big-hearted, moustachioed critter is back. Following rave reviews and an Olivier nomination for Best Entertainment and Family show, Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax returns to The Old Vic stage.

This dazzlingly funny, moving and inspiring show sees the go-getting Once-ler come face to face with the magical Lorax in a battle over the beloved truffula trees and the whole of Paradise Valley. Adapted for the stage by David Greig with music and lyrics by Charlie Fink, Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax is a brilliant riot of eye-popping colour, gorgeous puppetry and infectious music to enchant adults and children alike.

About Relaxed Performances  

Mousetrap Theatre Project's Relaxed Performances are for families with one or more children with special needs. The performances are designed to provide an opportunity for young people with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who require a more relaxed environment.

"It was wonderful to relax and not feel stressed and scared, (which) is how I can feel taking my son who adores live performances but behaviour can be unpredictable. I found myself watching fellow people in the audience more than the show as it was so wonderful to see how much fun everyone was having.
Parent at Mamma Mia! 2016
