In 2018 our Junior School presented Seussical, a story based on Horton Hears a Who! while incorporating many other stories by Dr Seuss.
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favourite Dr. Seuss characters sprang to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza fom Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger 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.
