Seussical takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we join The Cat in the Hat (Curtis Druck), who guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton (Tariq McGriff), the kind-hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville.  He meets JoJo (Brett Davis), a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by Mayzie (Ashlee Bowers).  While at the same time, Gertrude (Kayla Pijanowski) tries to get Horton to notice her. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love, and it teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
