Seussical The Musical @ Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
Oct 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

seussical_large-1Directed by Julie Lane
Music Directed by Zach Thomas, Erica Bickhart
Asst. Directors/Choreography by Lindsay Taylor & Kristina Pritchard
Performances Oct. 7 & 8 at Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
Auditions Aug. 14-16, open to grades 1-12

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. 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 is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables.

Come join America’s favorite curly-haired carrot-top as she navigates the hilarious waters of friendship, family, school, and mischief on an epic third-grade adventure you’ll never forget.
