Seussical the Musical

''A person's a person no matter how small...''

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

 

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

With lots of large chorus numbers, great dance routines, fantastic roles and a lot of comedy this show is the perfect choice for our next easter musical!

There is a soundtrack available online that is well worth a listen to start getting excited about this wonderful show.
