This holiday season, Imagination Stage presents "Seussical," a fun musical adventure for the whole family! In "Seussical," the Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant that discovers a speck of dust containing a village of Whos, including JoJo, a young 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 to 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. Some of the characters fall in love, some have desperate adventures, and some even save the world. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
