SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL
February 2-11th 2017
At St. Jacobs Country Playhouse
All your favourite Dr. Seuss characters are brought to life in this imaginative musical adventure for the whole family. Colourful characters like Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo, transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos and beyond.
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 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 to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces many trials and dangers, the faithful Gertrude McFuzz never gives up on him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
Seussical™ is a fun-filled magical musical for the whole family!
