Next up, TexARTS Youth Musical Theatre Academy takes stage in the production of Seussical, Jr. Performances are scheduled for April 28 - 29 and May 5 - 6 at the Kam & James Morris Theatre at TexARTS (2300 Lohman's Spur, Suite 160 Austin, Texas 78734).
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical Jr., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. With catchy music and heartwarming tales, this is sure to be a family favorite. Horton faces a double challenge--not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to 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.
