Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical KIDS, a fantastical musical extravaganza. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in 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 Kids is a GREAT SHOW for students who enjoy singing, dancing, and creating different characters. It’s also a great opportunity for any student who wants to work together to make something special! Auditions will be held on the first two days of rehearsals (January 6 & 8). Everyone gets a part, space is limited to 55 students. There will be 1-2 school performances for staff and students as well as 2 free performances for friends and family. Performances will be held on Friday, March 13 at 7 pm and Saturday, March 14 at 10 am at Maple Grove Middle School.
