Mrs. Heiner, our school theater teacher, has announced the school musical for this year. Seussical the Musical cast list will be announced this week on the board by her class room.  Many ask what is Seussical the musical? 

Seussical is a musical comedy by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, based on the many children’s stories of Dr. Seuss. With most of its plot being based on Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches the Egg! while incorporating many other stories from Dr. Seuss.  

Horton Hears a Who is about an elephant who finds a small world on a speck of dust called Whoville that needs to be saved because they could be stepped on and crushed at any moment. He is the only one who can hear these Who’s. With his big heart he puts it on a soft clover and decides to save them. As he goes on a long journey while being made fun of and laughed at by all the other jungle animals to save these small creatures. He will keep telling Himself, “A person is a person no matter how small.”

It is now one of the most widely produced musicals in the country, Seussical weaves the story of friendship, loyalty, and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. 

This fun loving show stars the characters Horton the Elephant, Jojo the Who, Cat in the Hat, Gertrude Mcfuzz, Mayzie La Bird, Sour Kangaroo, Young Kangaroo, and Mr. and Mrs. Mayor. All the characters in the shows have very different and fun personalities that makes the show the way it is.
