Ticket sales began today for “Seussical,” presented by Pleasure Guild (PG) of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, with performances scheduled for March 2, 3 and 4, 2012, at the Palace Theatre in Columbus. Proceeds will benefit central Ohio’s only pediatric hospice and palliative care program.
PG, an auxiliary women’s volunteer group of Nationwide Children’s, fundraises specifically on behalf of the hospital’s hospice and palliative care program and produces an annual theater production as its primary benefit. Last year, Pleasure Guild members presented a check totaling $346,238 to the hospital.
This year’s ticket sales include a contest.
“We’re introducing a new ticket-giveaway contest this year, “said PG President, Miranda Roberts. “Visit and ‘like’ Pleasure Guild’s Facebook page during December and we’ll select one winner at random to receive four free tickets to the performance.”
“Seussical” is a magical musical extravaganza featuring favorite Dr. Seuss characters including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie, Jojo and the “Whos” among others.
Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com or at the Ohio Theatre Box Office starting December 1, 2011. For more information about Pleasure Guild or “Seussical,” or to purchase tickets, please visit www.pleasureguild.org.
“As Dr. Seuss says,” added Roberts, “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut!”
