Yes, the fantastical, bombastical and songtastical world of Dr. Seuss, one of the most celebrated children’s book authors, will be here live on stage at the Esplanade Theatre from 6 to 8 November 2015.
Featuring a spectacular compilation of whimsical elements, characters and delightful verses from some of Dr. Seuss classics – Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat – you sure are off to great places at Seussical the Musical!
Follow the adventures of Horton the Elephant who discovers a small world floating by on a tiny speck of dust. This small world is floating out of control through the universe and is the home of the Whos, including Jojo – a Who with “Things” that defy all description. Between them they must find a way to save Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers.
But Horton faces a double challenge, he’s been left alone to guard an abandoned egg, abandoned by none other than Mayzie La Bird! Caught between a dust speck and his incubating egg, Horton is truly alone in the universe, but while he faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and ends up on trial, little does he know the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.
While the kind-hearted Horton tries to protect the speck of dust and the Whos who live on it, look out for Cat in the Hat, the zany narrator who peppers the musical with his endless tricks, and witty, thought-provoking commentary.
Only Tony Award Winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, helped with a sprinkling of the fantastical from ‘Monty Python’s’ Eric Idle, could bring the magical “thinks” of Dr. Seuss to the stage. So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and fire up your imagination in the world of Dr. Seuss.
