Thoreau’s Spring Musical-Seussical, Jr.

This year’s production is the musical Seussical. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, and the tiny town of Whoville, the Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been 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! A great family friendly show for all.

Performances run April 24 through April 26 at 7:30PM in Thoreau’s Cafetorium. In addition, there will be a 3:00 PM matinee on Saturday, April 26th. Rising 7th grade students interested in Thoreau drama program are encouraged to come to this matinee as it will be our “Welcome Elementary Schools” performance. Meet the cast and crew afterwards — and Ms. Malone, the head of Thoreau’s Theater Arts program, will be available.

Tickets are on sale to the general public now at Thoreau during lunches (11 AM – 12:15 PM) – You can also buy them at the door, but come early as some shows do sell out, and we don’t want to have to turn you away! Cost of tickets is $5.00 each, so save the date! See you there!

Due to renovation, we have limited parking spaces. Please feel free to park at Cunningham Park Elementary School or Cedar Lane School and walk up to Thoreau.
