A fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that lovingly brings together all your
favorite Dr. Seuss characters. Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz,
Lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination come to life with many others on the stage at Yanney Park.
Tony Award winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, have created a colorful world that
transports 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 containing Whos. He 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. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
