Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Co-Conceived by Eric Idle
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
Seussical TM brings to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant,
The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie, and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo.
"Oh, the Thinks You Can Think" captures the show's spirit of imagination, as the colorful characters
transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only
must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (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. Although Horton
faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the
only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty,
family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.
