"It is a very fun show," said producer Leslie Gorkowski, "We can't wait to share it with you."
The Cat In The Hat will tell the story of Horton the Elephant, who rescues the Whos from Whoville. See Jojo, the smallest Who of all, who is scolded for thinking incredible "thinks," and take a nonstop journey with Horton as he faces naysayers, big obstacles, kidnapping and other dangers while taking the responsibility of watching the egg of Lazy Mayzie.
The citizens of the Jungle of Nool learn about bullying, standing up for what you believe in, loyalty, friendship, and most importantly, that "a person's a person, no matter how small."
The characters will travel through the Jungle of Nool, the Circus of McGurkus and then transport themselves to the invisible world of the Whos.
This cast of 80 children, ages 7-15, will be performing this outrageous, magical musical April 11-14 at the Hemmens Cultural Center, 45 Symphony Way, Elgin.
