Prep Players Presents 'Seussical the Musical' May 2, 4 & 5

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” This week you'll find the funny things on our very own Tully Gymnasium stage as the Iona Prep Players, in conjunction with our sisters from The Ursuline School, proudly presents "Seussical the Musical." Curtains rise on Thursday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m., and again on Saturday, May 4, at the same time. There will also be a matinee performance on Sunday, May 5, at 2 p.m.

Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime), 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 are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Seussical is fun for the whole family! So what side is your popcorn buttered on? “If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good”
