Featuring some of Dr. Suess' most beloved characters, Suessical opens Friday at the High Street Arts Center.
The show teaches the lesson that "a person's a person, no matter how small" with the help of an elephant with sensitive hearing and a sensitive heart, a cat in a hat and with a taste for adventure and a boy whose mind is bursting with "too many thinks."
High Street's production features Jeremy Hannah as Horton the Elephant, Emma Howard and Stanley Miller as Jojo and Christopher Mahr as the Cat in the Hat.
Also appearing are Suzanne Mayes as Gurtrude McFuzz; Roger Krevenas as the Mayor of Whoville; Penny Krevenas as Mrs. Mayor; Hannah Davey and Monica Ubungen as Sour Kangaroo; Victoria Glasner as Mayzie LaBird; Korrin Alpers, Madeline Rubenstein and Rebecca Spagnolia as the Bad Girls; Aaron Hammersley, Rondell MacGarvey and Samuel Thacker as the Wickersham Brothers; Ken Patton as Yertle the Turtle; Time Reese as The Grinch and Juan Salvador as Vlad Vladikoff.
The show is directed by Erin Fagundes and produced by Kathee Boyer. Ken Rayzor is the executive producer.
