Seussical is a special Young Audiences Version of the wacky musical set in Dr Seuss’ rhyming world of cats in hats and green eggs and ham.

Join The Cat in the Hat as he takes  a journey into the fantastical, bombastical and songtastical world of Dr. Seuss. Meet Horton the Elephant, who discovers an entire small world floating by on a speck of dust. Floating out of control through the universe, this is the home of the Whos, including Jojo, a Who with “thinks” that defy all description. Horton and Jojo have to find a way to save Who from a world of naysayers and dangers. But Horton faces another challenge… he’s been left alone to guard an abandoned egg, abandoned by none other than Mayzie La Bird.

Caught between a dust speck and his incubating egg, Horton feels truly alone in the universe, but while he faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and ends up on trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild in the world of Dr. Seuss.
