Description:

A Person's a Person No Matter How Small

Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! The Cat in the Hat tells 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 faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping 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.
Seussical is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables. (mtishows.com)

Characters:

Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat is the essence of mischief, fun and imagination. Actor (male or female) must be physically adept, be able to play many comic cameos and is comfortable improvising with an audience.

JoJo

JOJO is a "Thinker," a smart child with a wild imagination. By the end of the show, (s)he learns what it means to be a responsible member of his world, using the power and possibilities of his/her own Thinks.

Horton the Elephant

HORTON THE ELEPHANT. A gentle giant, rotund and appealing. Think of him as a big-hearted blue collar guy who is steadfast and responsible and always tries to do the right thing for his friends. He is imaginative, receptive to the world around him, and very un-self-conscious.

Gertrude McFuzz

GERTRUDE McFUZZ. Very self-conscious and aware that her one-feather tail isn't perfect. Gertrude changes during the show from a vain, neurotic, nervous and shy bird into one with the power to protect and care for a baby elephant bird and commit herself to Horton.

Mayzie La Bird

MAYZIE LA BIRD. Self-centered, selfish and vain, Mayzie will never admit to her own flaws. She manipulates anyone she can (especially Horton) into doing what she wants. But Mayzie isn't all bad. In giving up her egg to Horton, she has a moment of generosity--she realizes she isn't the kind of person who'd be a good parent and she does the best thing she can for the egg.

Sour Kangaroo

She isn't really sour at all. She's just got a lot of attitude. She's loud, brassy and a lot of fun.

The Wickersham Brothers

They are a lot like kids who tease, play pranks and get a kick out of making mischief, although often at others' expense.

Bird Girls

Sassy birds and citizens of the Jungle of Nool. The popular girls in any school--a clique of pretty, self-centered "back up birds" who do whatever Mayzie does. They often act as storytellers, picking up where the Cat left off.

Thing 1

The cat's main helpers and an extension of his personality. They assist the Cat in many ways, either playing small roles or causing havoc. Actors should be strong movers with good comic ability.

Thing 2

The cat's main helpers and an extension of his personality. They assist the Cat in many ways, either playing small roles or causing havoc. Actors should be strong movers with good comic ability.

Mr Mayor

The mayor of Whoville and Jojo's Dad. He and his wife try hard to raise a difficult child in a difficult world. They may get aggravated with Jojo, but they love him dearly and try to do the right thing, even if it turns out to be a mistake.

Mrs Mayor

The Mayor's wife and Jojo's mom. She and her husband try hard to raise a difficult child in a difficult world. They may get aggravated with Jojo, but they love him dearly and try to do the right thing, even if it turns out to be a mistake.

General Gengus Khan Schmitz

General Schmitz is bursting with pride at the military academy he runs, and the kids he turns out. He is not sadistic, mean or abusive. he is proud! He is a comic character, because it's clear he's misguided, but he is not a villain or bully.

Grinch

Cindy Lou Who

Yertle the Turtle

A turtle and citizen of the Jungle of Nool. He is King of the Pond and thinks he is very important. He presides as Judge at Horton's trial.

Vlad Vladikoff

The Whos/Cadets/Hunches

They're a lot like you and me only so small as to be invisible.

Jungle Creatures/Fish/Hunches
