Yes, you definitely do. An order is a court order. In other words, the court is ordering you to do something, and a show cause order specifically requires that you show up in court to explain why the court should not take an action it is considering related to a lawsuit you are involved in. If you do not show up on the day and at the time indicated in the order, you could be found in contempt of court and arrested.
