musical perfect for the whole family, Seussical takes
us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved
characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the
Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo.
Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool
where we see Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers
a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo,
a Who child sent to military school for thinking too
many thinks. Horton decides he must protect
the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same
time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by
the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the
other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the
Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity.
Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses
faith in him. Eventually, the two fall in love.
Now one of the most widely produced musicals in the
country, Seussical weaves a story of friendship,
loyalty, and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude
band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore
peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool.
Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and
the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
