"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide and cavort in an unforgettable musical caper!
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical KIDS, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime).
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been 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!
Gas Lamp is thrilled to continue our spring kids workshop of Seussical this fall! A FEW NEW SPOTS are available for ensemble and potential lead roles.
Outdoor rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 5:30pm and 7:00pm (local location TBD). In order to keep groups small, not all participants will be called each day and not all will be called for the entire rehearsal time. In the event of inclement weather, rehearsals will be held virtually.
Masks are required for all students and staff for the duration of the rehearsal and social distancing must be followed. For additional information regarding Gas Lamp's COVID policy and procedures, please visit https://gaslampplayers.org/vlt161666.htm.
