Junior Summer Stock Musical: Seussical Jr.

Grades: 3rd-8th

Days: Tuesday - Thursday

Class Time: 03:15 PM- 05:45 PM

Program Type: Summer Programs

+ More Info

Directed by Alyssa Rae Surette 

Music Direction by Eric Balboni

Seussical Jr.  takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo. The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind-hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child reprimanded 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 the lazy Mayzie la Bird. 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. Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him and eventually, the two fall in love. Seussical Jr. weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Seussical Jr. teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.

All who register for this production will be cast in the show. Rehearsals are Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 3:15– 5:45 pm | July 5–August 5th.
