Seussical is a musical for the whole family, by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Based on the world of Dr. Seuss it revisits beloved characters such as The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo.

The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where Horton, the kind hearted elephant discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks”. Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbour, Gertrude McFuzz, keeps faith in him. Eventually, the two fall in love.

Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love where, despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. The Show charmingly teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.

Featuring the talented students of the Secondary School of La Grande Boissiere, in a production by the MUSIC and DRAMA Departments. Directed by Amanda Linden and John Marc Davies.
