Seussical: The Musical

Seussical: The Musical
Members of the Drama Club will be performing Seussical: The Musical on March 24 and 25 in the Theatre at Mineola High School.

Seussical is a magical, musical extravaganza written by Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. The story, narrated in part by the whimsical Cat in the Hat (Jack Gorman), centers around Horton the Elephant (Zachary Sloan), who finds himself faced with a double challenge. Not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (Jake Lenze) and all the invisible Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Jillian Palma).

Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Sarah Harty) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant in a story that makes you laugh and cry.

See these characters and all those in the world of Whoville on Friday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this zany and heartfelt journey into the stories of Dr. Seuss are just $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.mineola.k12.ny.us<http://www.mineola.k12.ny.us> click on “departments” and then “fine arts.”
