Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical TYA is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime) have lovingly brought 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. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
On March 31 and April 1, 2017, the Havre de Grace Drama Guild celebrated its 10th season by presenting the perfect family outing, “Seussical!” featuring the combined talents of our Teen Troupe, Youth Troupe and Tiny Tots. This “Theater for Young Audiences” edition of the Broadway play was the perfect length for younger attention spans, and drew its inspiration from the classic Seuss stories that are likely sitting by your child’s bedside. “Seussical” combines “Horton Hears a Who” with “Horton Hatches the Egg,” then throws in a bit from the short story “Gertrude McFuzz” and even a touch of “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think,” all with the Cat in the Hat as a sort of Master of Ceremonies.
