Seussical KIDS

Ages 7 - 12 (Limited to 30 Students Per Camp) - $175

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Students will learn what it takes to produce a musical as they prepare for a special performance for friends and family. All campers will receive a t-shirt, script, and rehearsal CD with songs from the show. Don’t forget to pre-order flowers for your little star to celebrate their accomplishments!
