Thurs-Sun, 7pm - 11:59pm
May 3 – 6, 2018 • Featuring local performers ages 8-14
Our spring Rising Stars production is Seussical the Musical, a charming “mashup” of several Dr. Seuss stories, mainly “Horton Hears a Who,” “Horton Hatches the Egg” and “Miss Gertrude McFuzz.”
Horton the Elephant hears a noise coming from a speck of dust on a clover, and commits himself to protecting it – and all the tiny Whos who live on it. Young Jojo, son of the mayor, struggles to fit into Whoville society. Poor, plain Gertrude McFuzz tries to catch the attention of her love: the kind and compassionate, preoccupied and oblivious Horton. Through mishaps and victories, these colorful characters finally find what everyone seeks – their places in their world.
In this “fantastical” musical for all ages, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are tested, proven and celebrated. Because, as everyone knows, “A person’s a person, no matter how small!”
From rousing production numbers like “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think” and “Biggest Blame Fool” to poignant ballads like “Solla Sollew” and “Alone in the Universe,” these songs will stay with you!
