Suessical, The Musical Jr.
Presented by Singing Onstage
AT THE STATE THEATRE
Tuesday, January 8, 2013 | 7:30p
In this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza, Singing on Stage students have affectionately brought to life all of our beloved Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination–Jojo. Join these characters as they transport from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus and even 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 who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Not only must Horton guard the Whos from a world of naysayers and hazard, but he must protect a deserted egg, left to his care by the reckless Mayzi La Bird. Although Horton is fearful, Gertrude McFuzz has steady confidence in his friend, even though he will face ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
