The Amarillo Little Theatre Academy and AAA Electric invite you into the world of Dr. Seuss as we present the fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza, Seussical!
Tony winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Anastasia, Once on This Island, Ragtime), have lovingly brought to life all of our 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 Whochild who gets into trouble 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.
ALT Academy has assembled a terrific cast to bring this musical to life. Seussical features 84 talented Academy students and is being directed by Academy Director Jason Crespin. Academy Instructors Brandon Bellar and Reilly Downes serve as Music Director and Choreographer, respectively, with Scenic Design by Tana Roberson and Costume Design by Alexandra Bennett.
