The musical Seussical is Dec 5-22 at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts.
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss, Seussical is the brainchild of Monty Python’s Eric Idle and the award-winning composing team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens.
We meet the big-hearted Horton the Elephant who is faithfully protecting Mayzie LaBird’s egg, and a lonely Who child named JoJo. Along the way, the shy Gertrude McFuzz, Yertle the Turtle, and the Sour Kangaroo make Horton’s journey much more of an adventure. Meyers says that the Seussical script invites “imaginative and zany directing concepts, and the cast has jumped right in” with their amazing talent and willingness to trust, explore, and make strong choices.
Perhaps the words of the sly but wise Cat in the Hat most aptly illustrate the Seussical experience: “There is no telling what may ensue, with a Cat such as me, and a thinker like you!”
Tickets for Seussical are available at MCTinc.org.
