Based on the works of Dr. Seuss

The Cat in the Hat narrates this musical 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 also guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, his kind next-door neighbor, 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!       Rated G
