Little Rock Christian Academy is so excited to share the wonderful story of Seussical with our community! Seussical combines some of the most beloved Dr. Seuss books including Horton Hears A Who, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Yertle The Turtle, and more!
Our narrator, The Cat in the Hat, tells the story of Horton, an optimistic elephant who discovers a small speck of dust where the Whos reside, and Jojo, a creative 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 he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
In our rendition of this whimsical tale, these beloved characters may look a little different than you remember. Audiences will see characters brought to life not through animal suits, but through vibrant choreography, jungle animal physicality, and bright funky costumes with a 1950’s flare. We hope you come to see this beautiful tale of love, friendship, and family!
