“Oh the thinks you can think, think and wonder and dream, far and wide as you dare…”
After all those years being stuck on a page, did you ever imagine you’d see them on stage?
Join The Cat in the Hat as he takes you on a journey into the fantastical, bombastical and songtastical world of Dr Seuss.
Horton the Elephant discovers a small world floating by on a 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 “thinks” that defy all description. Between them they must find a way to save Who 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.
Tony Award Winners Stephen Flaherty and Lyn Ahrens, helped with a sprinkling of the fantastical from ‘Monty Python’s’ Eric Idle, bring the magical “thinks” of Dr Seuss to the stage.
So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild in the world of Dr. Seuss.
