A pop musical for all ages, Seussical is an enchanting celebration of friendship, compassion, bravery, and the power of imagination. The show features elements from Dr. Seuss classics including The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Horton Sits on the Egg, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories, McElligot’s Pool, and Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
Join the mischievous Cat in the Hat as he narrates the story of Horton the Elephant and his friends as they embark on a fanciful journey from the Jungle of Nool, through the mountains, and across the ocean, to help a young girl named Jojo bring harmony back to the tiny planet of Who. Along the way, meet zany Dr. Seuss characters including the tiny Whos, sour kangaroos, harmonizing birds, and trouble-making monkeys!
What a wonderful show! Enjoyable for children and adults alike!
The very talented cast did a fantastic job portraying some of the most famous characters from Dr. Seuss’ classical stories. The kind, gentle Horton, the romantic Gertrude, the courageous and imaginative Jojo, the naughty Cat in the Hat and many others all united to tell their adventurous story.
The storyline, costumes, music, lighting and props were well thought out and executed perfectly.
We also enjoyed the Q & A with the actors after the show. The kids were truly impressed to be able to interact with the actors 🙂
