Now one of the most performed shows in America, "Seussical" is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty ("Ragtime," "Once On This Island") have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. "Oh, the Thinks You Will Think" as the spirit of imagination transports the colorful characters from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisiblenbsp; world of the Whos.brp/ppFor this version, certain plot elements have been simplified, it is in one act, and runs approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes - perfectnbsp; for presentation in schools. (See SYNOPSIS for details) br/ppThe story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie Lanbsp; Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story thatnbsp; makes you laugh and cry. br/ppFor complete information on this and other Ahrens and Flaherty shows, as well as linksnbsp;to purchase CDs, vocal selections and other publications, please gonbsp; tonbsp;a href="http://www.ahrensandflaherty.com/"www.AhrensandFlaherty.com/a./p
