Photo Coverage: First look at Wagnalls Community Theater Presents SEUSSICALPhoto Coverage: First look at Wagnalls Community Theater Presents SEUSSICAL
by Jerri Shafer - Nov 3, 2017

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing 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 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. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Seussical performs November 3-19, 2017, at The Wagnalls Memorial, 150 E. Columbus, St., Lithopolis, OH 43136. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit: http://wagnallscommunitytheater.weebly.com/ (more...)
