Ferndale, MI – Ferndale High School is presenting “Seussical” as this year’s musical. It is a delightful, colorful show with great music and very familiar characters – Horton the elephant, Cat in the Hat, Maisie La Bird, Yertle the Turtle and the Grinch among others. Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love. Here’s the synopsis:
The Cat in the Hat guides us 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 sent to military school 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. Eventually, the two fall in 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.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizen available at the box office, or in advance from The Kulick Center, the Pleasant Ridge Community Center.
