Kennett High School Presents Seussical the Musical

 

Seussical Musical Logo

Kennett High School is proud to present the 2019 musical, Seussical!

Seussical is fun for the whole family! Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, 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. 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.

Join Kennett High School students for this magical, musical extravaganza March 14 through March 16.

Schedule:

Thursday, March 14 at 7:30 pm

Friday, March 15 at 7:30 pm

Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 pm

Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 pm

Tickets will be available for purchase online soon.
