Seussical brings to life all of our 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. The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double-challenge: how can he protect his new friend, Jojo, and all the citizens of the tiny planet Who, while caring for the egg of his irresponsible friend, Mayzie? Through changing seasons, being captured by the circus, and great danger, Horton must protect his friends and his egg because, after all: “A Person’s a Person, No Matter How Small.” (-Dr. Seuss)
This bright and upbeat show captures the spirit of imagination, while teaching important lessons about the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community. Seussical, the Musical, is directed by Oakcrest theatre arts director, Jessica Erin Carey, and Oakcrest musical director, Anne Miller, with choreography by Kendra Slatt.
Don’t miss your chance to see Oakcrest students bring to life this enjoyable production based on the many Dr. Seuss books that we all know and love!
