"SUESSICAL" is described as a "a fantastical, musical extravaganza!"
All of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters from 15 of his books are
brought to life: Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude
McFuzz, Mayzie, and a imaginative little boy--Jojo. The colorful
characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus
McGurkus to the world of the Whos. Follow Horton, who finds himself
protecting his tiny friend Jojo (and all the Whos) from a world of
naysayers & dangers, but also an abandoned egg, left by the
irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Horton faces ridicule, danger,
kidnapping and a trial, but the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses
faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family
and community are challenged and emerge triumphant; in a story that
makes you laugh and cry.
