After the huge success of “CATS”, our junior group are staying with the “cat” theme but tackling a rather different type of show with “Seussical”. This musical brings to life all-time favourite characters from the much loved Dr Seuss children’s books which weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love.
The 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 neighbour, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. Eventually the two fall in love. A colourful musical perfect for all the family, sit back and let your imagination run wild in the world of Dr Seuss.
