Book and Lyrics by Lynne Ahrens/ Music by: Stephen Flaherty
Celebrate 100 years of Dr. Seuss! In this story the beloved Seuss characters are brought to life. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains Whoville (the tiniest planet in the sky), including one little Who named Jojo, who is always in trouble for thinking too many thinks! Horton is faced with protecting the Whos from a dangerous world and the Sour Kangaroo, but also finds himself protecting an egg that was abandoned by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. The faithful Horton is able to overcome ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial with the help of his trusty neighbor Gertrude McFuzz. Friendship, loyalty and the community are challenged, but ultimately win!
This show fits in with lessons about:
MAKING A DIFFERENCE, FACING INJUSTICES, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS, INVESTIGATING PERSONAL STRENGTH, DETERMINATION, COMMUNITY, HOW THINGS CHANGE, RHYTHM AND RHYME, and CARING ABOUT MYSELF AND OTHERS.
