Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! See all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters brought to life, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy 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. Seussical is fun for the whole family!

About Theater Works School Programs
Educators searching for arts integration programming that meets Common Core Standards are only a phone call away from affordable community resources.
Theater Works designs many of its productions with classroom integration in mind – from performances timed specifically so classrooms can attend during the school day, to study guides that teachers can download and present to their classrooms before the show and follow-up materials for student discussions after the performance.
Some productions offer teacher and student edition study guides that cover such subjects as: the history of the shows to Vocabulary lessons for words found throughout the performances (fill in the blank and crossword puzzles, to information on the theatrical process and questions from the text of the play.
Both adults and youth learn best through participation and direct involvement. Using these materials teachers can help students gain appreciation for theatre not just as a form of art but also English, History, Science, Math and other topics imperative to their social well-being.
These programs are developed so we can work together with educators to transform young people and communities through theatre arts.
