Event Notes


The Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the 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 in his care. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community emerge triumphant. 

Seussical™ is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that is fun for the entire family! Favorite Dr. Seuss characters come 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 score is a Seussian mash-up of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk! So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild!

Directed & Choreographed by Doug King
