Seussical Creates a New Story
With a blend of Seuss characters from all these books, Seussical the Musical follows the Cat in the Hat as he tells the story of Horton who finds a speck of dust inhabited by tiny Whos, including a Who child by the name of Jojo.
Jojo is sent off to butter battling military school for the crime of thinking too many ‘thinks.’ Horton is taunted for his special attention to the speck of dust as well of his special care for Mayzi LaBird’s egg. Of course, it’s JoJo’s ‘thinks’ that come to the rescue in the end.
