Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax and The Old Vic


It was a love that blossomed over half a decade ago in 2015.  

Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax underpinned our commitment to being our best, greenest selves from our compostable coffee cups to e-tickets to sending our audience out into the world with actual seeds of hope to plant in their gardens, and we couldn’t be happier to be beaming his important message of protecting the planet across the globe this Easter.  


Performing to an empty auditorium with minimal set and lighting may be a daunting task to many performers; not to The Lorax. The 11-strong cast will be inventively adapting this timeless tale as a semi-staged ‘pint-sized’ version especially for the OLD VIC: IN CAMERA live streamed series.  

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a truly unique, live theatre experience.
