‘Seussical the Musical’ coming to the Glenbard North stage in late April

Glenbard North Theatre will present its spring musical production, “Seussical the Musical,” on April 25 and 27. It is based on Dr. Seuss’ “Horton Hears a Who” and his other works.

As stated in a synopsis from Music Theatre International, “The Cat in the Hat” narrates the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton needs to protect the Whos from danger, as well as guard an abandoned egg left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces many trials and tribulations, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.”

“Seussical the Musical” will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 25, and 1 and 7 p.m. Saturday, April 27, in Livingston Auditorium at Glenbard North High School, 990 Kuhn Road in Carol Stream. There will be no performance on Friday, April 26.
