"Horton hears a noise coming from a speck of dust on a clover and commits himself to protecting it and the Whos who live on it; Jojo, a misfit Who who “doesn't Think normal Thinks," struggles to find his place in the tiny Who society; Gertrude McFuzz tries to catch the attention of her love - the kind and compassionate Horton. Through mishaps and adventures, these unique characters finally find what they seek - their places in their world." (Broadway Musical Home)
The Servant of Two Masters

by Carlo Goldoni
directed by Dan Burson
Truffaldino signs on to serve two masters -- each unbeknownst to the other -- in this classic comedy that comes to us from the commedia dell'arte tradition. Characters in disguise, absurd situations, and a comedy of errors will leave you in stitches. (The Servant of Two Masters inspired the critically acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors, which launched James Corden to stardom and a latenight talkshow.)
May not be suitable for small children and very serious adults.
Join the cast for a Q&A after the Sunday 9/17 performance.

Among those buried here are sea captains, veterans of the French and Indian War and several prominent citizens from Freeport's early years.
Old Paris Burying Ground is located on Meetinghouse Rd, across from Wilbur's Chocolate Factory.
