Seussical the Musical

Skip image

Story image 1_0

Coming to Peru March 24 and 25!

Welcome to the imagination of the one and only Dr. Seuss, as seen through young Jojo and his world of unthinkable thinks. Seussical Jr.  is a collection of some of Dr. Seuss' most beloved characters and stories all narrated by the mischievous Cat in the Hat.

It is the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and 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 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!

This year's musical is under the direction of Natalie Verucchi and Tyler Reviglio and assisted by Becky Delaney. Boasting over 40 students in the cast and crew, and hosting a brilliant blend of book and songs, dances, costumes, and fabulous fun, Seussical, Jr. has something for everyone of all ages!  We hope you "dare to think, wonder, and dream" with the cast of Seussical, Jr.!

Two 7:00 p.m. performances will be held in the Parkside Gymnasium on Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25. Admission is $4 for K-8 students and $6 for high school students and up. Tickets are available for the same price in advance or at the door. We hope to see you there!
