Seussical the Musical
Theatre / Youth
Performances: Friday, August 11, 2017, 7:00pm; Saturday, August 12, 2017, 2:00 & 7:00pm; Sunday, August 13, 2017, 2:00pm (Center for Performing Arts - Hinman Auditorium) Seussical the Musical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! All of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters have been brought to life, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. 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.
