“Seussical the Musical” is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza in which the favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and Jojo, a little boy with a big imagination, are brought to life. 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 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 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.
“Seussical” is fun for the whole family. Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables.
Performances run from Nov. 2 to 18 at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College in Folsom.
All who audition should dress to dance and be prepared to sing a song of up to one minute in length to either a background CD, a capella or with the piano accompanist.
