The STAR Program presents
Seussical Kids

STAR Program Seussical Kids Performances (Square) (1)

The STAR program (ages 7-12) summer intensive camp presents Seussical Kids, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. In this 30-minute musical, Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of the favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, 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!  (Rated G by Music Theatre International)
