Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community emerge triumphant!
