65 talented local performers bring this story to the Mason High School Auditorium
for four performances
ROYAL Theatre Company, Home of The Children’s Theatre of Mason, is proud to present SEUSSICAL, November 3-5 in Mason. One of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza!
The show will run for four performances – Friday, November 3rd at 7:00pm; Saturday, November 4th at 2:00pm and 7:00pm; and Sunday, November 5th at 2:00pm. VIP reserved seating tickets can be purchased for any show for $25 each, and General admission tickets for any show are $12 each. All tickets can be purchased online at www.ctm-kids.com through November 2nd at 5pm and at the door starting one hour before each show.
Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and a child with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a 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. “There are wonderful and powerful messages in Seussical,” said Karen Kilgore, President of ROYAL Theatre Company. “
ROYAL Theatre Company recently announced a capital campaign for a new state-of-the-art 750 seat Performing Arts Center. Karen Kilgore said, “Just like the Who’s come together to announce ‘We are here’, so too have we seen great support for our efforts to build a brand new theatre to benefit our entire community. To paraphrase Dr. Seuss…’Oh the places we’ll go!’”
