Seussical Jr. takes place in the Jungle of Nool, featuring the Cat in the Hat as the narrator of the story. Horten the Elephant discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Who’s from danger, and he must protect an abandoned egg that has been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Horten faces ridicule and danger, but his friend Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Through the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community, Horten saves the Who’s and the egg from danger. This musical features many leading characters and calls for a large cast to tell the funny, heroic and loving story from the land of Dr. Seuss.
