Oh the thinks you can think when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper! Experience this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza, as envisioned by Cory Steiger and his creative team, including Chloe Youtsey (music) and Kristin Zipprich (choreography). The "amayzing" performances of this extraordinarily talented, vibrant cast will delight audiences of all ages ... don't miss this!
Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite 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. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus 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 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 by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
This is a great show for families, and anyone who wants to experience the pure JOY and feel-good vibes of Dr. Seuss!
