The Seussical will be here from February 1-25 of this year.
You might be wondering what in the world is a Seussical? We’ll, it is a musical put on by the
Cape Fear Regional Theater.
In act one, we are transported into the world of Seuss. The lights dim, and the stage lights shine. Here we meet the adorable Jojo (played by Ally Ivey) as he discovers a mysterious red and white stripped hat in the center of the floor. Attached to that hat we find an overzealous Cat in the Hat (played by Ben Franklin). The Cat in the Hat, tries to get Jojo to explore the wonders of thought with a song entitled: “Oh, the Things You Can Think.”
The Cat in the Hat and Jojo take the audience on an adventure where we meet the colorful characters of Seuss such as Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird, the Sour Kangaroo, and many more. Watch as Horton (played by Paul Urriolaz ), a determined elephant, strives to save the Planet of Who, which is the smallest planet on a flick of dust. Horton must battle his own loneliness and ridicule from most of the all the other animals except Gertrude McFuzz (played by Tess Deflyer), who is madly in love with him but goes unnoticed. Act one is filled with singing, dancing, laughter, and acrobatics.
Act two continues Horton’s colorful story, as he stumbles upon Mayzie La Bird (played by Tiffany Renee Thompson) and her egg. The fun continues through a Seussian menagerie of meetings, mishaps, and momentum. You will want to be in the audience at the end when the egg hatches in this play full of fun and surprises. Watch the play this
February and find out what those surprises are.
