SEUSSICAL Jumps From Page To Stage At The Playhouse At Allenberry!
Oh the Thinks you can think when you think about Seuss! Plunging audiences, striped-hat-first, into Dr. Seuss's whimsical world, Seussical takes over the Allenberry stage with all your favorite Seuss characters including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gerturde McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird, and a little boy with a big imagination, Jojo. Bursting with frivolity and imagination, the colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many 'thinks'. 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 in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Seussical is fun for the whole family!
