I absolutely love Seussical the Musical, and am thrilled to be stage managing for Aquinas junior school students performing in this fantastic show. 

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, our narrator the Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks". Horton's challenge is twofold: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and danger, but 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, 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!
