In March, Concordia Academy presents the hit Broadway musical Seussical, based on the works of Dr. Seuss. Performances are March 9 and 10 at 7:00 pm, March 11 at 2:00 pm, and March 16 and 17 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $12 for reserved seats, $10 for general admission, and $8 for students and senior citizens (general admission). Online ticket sales are now closed. Tickets will also be available at the door until sold out. The box office opens one hour prior to showtime.
Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.
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 shine brightly.
Seussical is fun for the whole family!
