FALLBROOK – King's Players will present "Seussical the Musical Jr." July 21-29 at Christ the King Lutheran Church. A cast of 28 children, ages 7-18, have been rehearsing since early May. The show is being produced and directed by Mary Fry.
This will be the last show for Fry, who has been directing youth theater for over 20 years in Fallbrook, as she will be moving out of Fallbrook in early August.
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in "Seussical the Musical Jr.," a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos.
Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
