Norwood 7th and 8th graders will present "Seussical Jr." May 2-4

Step into the enchanting world of Dr. Seuss with the delightful musical extravaganza, Seussical Jr.! Embark on a whimsical journey alongside cherished characters like The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo. Save the date and join us for a magical experience for the entire family from May 2-4, 2024!
The Cat in the Hat guides the audience into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind-hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child reprimanded for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the Lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him and eventually, the two fall in love. Seussical Jr. weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool, while teaching us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
