Seussical TYA


Music By  Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by  Lynn Ahrens
Book by  Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens
Based on the works of Dr. Seuss

One Act, Book Musical, Rated G
Theatre for Young Audiences Version

Now one of the most performed shows in America, SEUSSICAL TYA is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (LUCKY STIFF, MY FAVORITE YEAR, ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, and RAGTIME) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination--Jojo. "Oh, the Thinks You Will Think" as the spirit of imagination transports the colorful characters from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible  world of the Whos.

The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to 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, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that  makes you laugh and cry.

This version has been specially adapted to a 75-minute version for adults performing for children (TYA - Theatre for Young Audiences).
SEUSSICAL - Theatre for Young Audiences Version is available with full orchestrations or a fully orchestrated rehearsal/performance CD.
